Loans Available to Help with Transition to Biweekly Pay

UW–Madison is offering short-term, interest-free loans to employees to help with the change from a monthly payroll schedule to biweekly pay. The loan program is designed to provide some financial relief to those employees who may be most impacted by the transition to biweekly pay that will take place in July and August. The loan application period is open through August 15; employees who wish to receive their loan funds on July 30 should apply by July 15. No loan funds will be distributed prior to July 30. Loan repayment will be via paycheck deduction for a one-year period starting in October 2021. Details about eligibility, loan amounts, and loan terms are available at

Watch for Phishing Emails

The UW–Madison Office of Cybersecurity is aware of two active phishing campaigns on campus in which attackers impersonate UW–Madison employee support units. The email messages ask recipients to click a link to visit a fake COVID-19 benefits site, promising financial assistance. Please be on the lookout for such scams. Do not click the link in these emails, change your NetID password immediately if you accidentally click the link, and report any emails that look suspicious.
