Save for Summer Program Overview

The A&M System has retired its legacy HR and payroll tools as of December 2017 and has moved to Workday.

As of January 2018, the EPP was replaced by a new program called Save for Summer. EPP participants were automatically enrolled in Save for Summer on January 2, 2018

You may make changes to or withdraw from the Save for Summer program by submitting the newly updated Save for Summer Authorization Form.

Net Pay

A percentage of your net pay is withheld and returned to you in the July, August and September paychecks. Since January 2018, a flat dollar amount has been held back that equals the percentage amount held back before changes went into effect. If you receive a pay increase after January 2, your flat dollar amount will not be adjusted automatically, and you may wish to increase the amount held back to reflect the change in your base pay.

Insurance Premiums

A percentage of your insurance premiums are held back and returned to you in May when the June, July and August insurance premiums are paid. Since January 2018, a flat dollar amount will be held back that equals the percentage amount held back today.

Beginning September 2018, insurance premiums will be paid during nine working months and deducted from your October - June paychecks, whether you work 9, 9 & 1/2, 10, 10 & 1/2, or 11 months.

Save for Summer will no longer hold back a portion of insurance premiums and you will no longer pay for summer insurance in May.
