Third payday of the month, May 31

Most King County employees get paid on a biweekly basis. Since there are 52 weeks in a year, there are actually 26 pay periods. So, two months each year you will receive three paychecks—this year, it will happen on May 31 and Nov. 29.

The net dollar amount of these two paychecks may be larger because not all deductions are taken out. For example, Deferred Compensation, supplemental insurance premiums, Benefit Access Fees, and Employee Giving donations are not deducted from these “third” paychecks.

For more information about your paycheck, go to Payroll or speak with your department Payroll representative or timekeeper.
