One-Time Salary Supplement

 On September 14, 2018, the Auburn University Board of Trustees approved the operating budget for the 2019 fiscal year, which includes provisions for a permanent merit adjustment and a one-time supplement for Auburn University employees who meet the eligibility criteria.

If you receive the supplement and currently contribute to a tax-deferred annuity, contributions will be taken from your supplement. If you wish to stop the contribution, you must complete a new Voluntary Salary Deferral Agreement (VSDA) and return it to Human Resources (Attention: Payroll Specialist) by Friday, November 16, 2018.  The agreement forms are listed below.

Contributions will be stopped for the entire month of December, so they will not be taken from the supplement or from any December paychecks. On that same VSDA, you may indicate your wish to 
start the deduction again for January, which would not require completion of a second form. If you do not wish to start back in January, you can complete a new VSDA later.
