2024 Payroll Calendar A pay period calendar is a schedule that outlines the dates for an organization’s pay periods. It specifies the start and end dates of each pay period and the corresponding pay dates for employees. The frequency of pay periods may vary depending on state regulations, company policies, or the type of industry. Some organizations may use a bi-weekly pay period calendar, while others may use a semi-monthly or weekly pay period calendar. By using a pay period calendar, employees can anticipate when they will receive their paychecks, and employers can manage their payroll processes more efficiently.

For the year 2024, if you’re responsible for overseeing a standard biweekly pay system, your biweekly-paid employees (except freelancer, if you are freelancer, you will need W9 Form) will receive a total of 26 paychecks. Specifically, they will receive two paychecks in ten out of the twelve months, and in the remaining two months, they will receive three paychecks each.

When the initial paycheck in January is issued on the 6th, additional paychecks will be given out in June and September, resulting in three extra pay periods. However, if the first paycheck in January is distributed on the 13th instead, there will be an additional paycheck given out in both July and December.

The majority of company in USA pay biweekly salary, that mean if you are paid biweekly, you will have 26 pay checks. If you paid twice a month you will have 24 paychecks.
