Watch for Raise in End-of-August Paycheck

All eligible campus SHRA and EHRA staff and faculty can look for their newly approved raises in their August paychecks.

Because of the timing of the final statewide budget, the 1.5 percent legislative increase will be retroactive to July 1 and paid in the end-of-August paycheck. So that August paycheck will include two months of the raise, which was part of the 2016-17 state budget signed by Gov. Pat McCrory on July 14.

The increase will be based on an employee’s June 30 base salary and will include benefits-eligible employees with probationary, permanent or time-limited status working 20 or more hours per week. The increase is not set by performance ratings or existing disciplinary actions. The legislative increase does not apply to employees separated from state service prior to July 1, 2016, or to employees hired on July 1, 2016, or later.

In addition, all eligible SHRA and EHRA staff and faculty employed as of Sept. 1 of this year will receive a 0.5 percent bonus payment in their end-of-October paycheck. This payment will not be subject to the mandatory six percent retirement contribution. NC State is awaiting further guidance from the state and UNC General Administration on this bonus payment.

    What about the .5% merit based increase? Who is eligible and when will it be implemented?

    1. Brenda Uhlir says:

      Isn’t that the same as the bonus payment mentioned in this paragraph? “In addition, all eligible SHRA and EHRA staff and faculty employed as of Sept. 1 of this year will receive a 0.5 percent bonus payment in their end-of-October paycheck. This payment will not be subject to the mandatory six percent retirement contribution. NC State is awaiting further guidance from the state and UNC General Administration on this bonus payment”.

    This will help defray the cost of the increase in my yearly property tax.

  6. Judith Austin says:

    Why was my response censored? I stated that my increase would help defray the cost of the increase in my property taxes. Not grateful enough?

    Do you know when retirees receive their bonus. It was not in the August check.

  12. Trina Thomas says:

    Is the .5 bonus based on yearly salary or monthly salary? So it will be added to September 30 or October 30 check?

  13. Karin Shiflett says:

    When are retired state employees suppose to get the 1.6% one time bonus? It is still not in my monthly deposit in September.

  14. Ms.G says:

    Will state employees still receive a bonus in December like last year? (750)

  15. Marie Clay says:

    The little 0.5 percent bonus they could have kept! It was a joke! What happened to the 1.6 percent we were supposed to get?
