Frequent Asked Questions

Summer Bridge

  1. Do employees need to fill out the Prior Employment section on the EIF, and what does Payroll do with this information?

    Yes, they do need to fill this out. This helps identify if an employee has been in the PERS retirement system. However, a Bridge job classification by nature is not eligible for PERS but often times these sign-ups are used should the employee apply for a future position on campus; so the forms should be as complete as possible.

  2. On the appointment document, does the #10 field have to be signed by an authorized signer?

    Since the time sheets do not require that the Supervisor signature be an authorized signer the appointment document would follow suit. 

  3. What taxes and/or deductions will be taken out of my Summer Bridge pay warrant?

    Bridge student workers are exempt from paying into social security but they are required to pay into the Part-Time, Seasonal & Temporary Retirement @ 7.5% and they are required to pay into Medicare @ 1.45%. For additional information on the Part-Time, Seasonal & Temporary Retirement Plan, please see the Savings Plus Benefits Payment Booklet and the Savings Plus Program website.

  4. Who picks up the cost when an employee working in multiple departments runs in to overtime for the week?

    Currently, Payroll's practice is to send the overtime notification and PR 32 to the department whose hours fell at the end of the week putting the employee in the overtime situation. Kind of a " last in approach"

  5. Who qualifies as a Bridge Student Assistant?

    Students must be enrolled in the fall 2019 semester for a minimum of 6 units (undergrad) or 4.5 units (grad). Seniors who will be graduating spring 2019 may work one final Bridge appointment for summer 2019 but must be separated by July 30, 2019.
