Planning to exit U-M by the end of the year? Following is the university’s official payroll calendar for campus employees:
Dec. 22 – last day of work
Dec. 25 – holiday
Dec. 27-30 – season days
Jan. 1 – holiday
Those Who Are Retiring
Campus faculty and staff who are planning to retire at year-end will have their last day of work on Dec. 22, 2023. They will retire on Dec. 31, 2023, which will also be their last day of pay. Jan. 1, 2024 will be their first day as an official university retiree. Retiring employees eligible for paid holidays and season days will receive the Christmas Day and New Year's Day holidays, and four season days.
Retiring employees do not need to report holiday time to receive pay for the New Year's holiday, as the Payroll team will add it to the December paycheck.
Those Who Are Separating
Individuals who are separating from U-M (not retiring) are different. To be paid for the Dec. 25 holiday, season days, and the Jan. 1 holiday (if eligible):
They must work the last regularly scheduled workday before the Dec. 25 holiday (i.e. Dec. 22).
They also must work the first regularly scheduled workday following the Jan. 1 holiday (i.e. Jan. 2).
