UFCU Direct Deposit Changes

At UFCU's request, we have recently implemented changes to how our payroll files are transmitted to them. For employees whose Payment Election is “Direct Deposit to UFCU”, the description of payroll deposits in your UFCU accounts will change from “UT Payroll” to “UNIV TX AUSTIN - PAYROLL”. While UFCU does not plan to change their policy of posting ahead of payday, they will likely not post these deposits as early in the day as they have been. If you have any questions regarding these changes, please email payroll@austin.utexas.edu.

TRS Member Contribution Changes

The TRS member contribution rate will increase from 7.7% to 8.0% for all eligible employees beginning with the September 1, 2021, pay check, as required by the 2019 Texas Legislative Session. The rates will increase every year until they reach a total rate of 8.25% for both employees and employers in 2024. For more information, please visit the TRS website.
