The Center for Rural Prosperity and the University System of Georgia is issuing a one-time supplemental payment of $1000 to eligible ABAC Faculty.
This payment is meant to go out to an estimated 57,000 state employees at the end of March.
Governor Brian Kemp also spoke on the supplement, “I believe we are doing our part as state leaders to say thank you for all that you have done.”
In February, Georgia house Speaker, David Ralston, and Governor Brian Kemp announced that $59 million was added to the 2020-2021 Fiscal Year Budget to provide state employees with a one-time bonus of $1000.
In order to be eligible for the $1000 payment, you must: make less than $80,000 per year, work at least 30 hours each standard workweek, be eligible for full-time benefits, and have worked at ABAC prior to March 7, 2021.
It is important to note that this one-time supplemental payment is not the same as a stimulus check.
The $1000 will not be paid out in its own separate check, it will be added to your paycheck. The payments will also be subject to FICA tax and income tax withholdings, but will not be subject to retirement contributions.
If you are eligible for the supplement you can expect to see it show up on your check in the last week of March.
Employees that are paid biweekly will receive their payment March 26 and those paid monthly will see the extra $1000 March 31.
