Escrow

What is Escrow?

Questions or concerns about Escrow please email NPSCompensation@NPS.K12.NJ.US

The purpose of the Escrow program is to allow 10- and 11-month employees to set aside a percentage (10%) of your money from your paycheck to be paid out to you over the summer months on a 12-month pay schedule.  (if you enroll this does not mean you are considered a 12 month employee).

This program is NOT for Per Diem and 12-month employees. There will be no exceptions to enroll post the deadlines for current employees and new hires as noted below. You must wait until open enrollment (May 1st to September 15th) to do so.

If you select a 12-month schedule you can choose from one of the two (2) pay options.

District employees who are currently on an Escrow pay option do not have to select each year unless the employee wishes to change the option or discontinue it.

The deadline for current employees is September 15th

Please note – You cannot participate if you are a Per Diem or 12-Month Employee.

All escrow deductions, regardless of option selected, shall be at a rate of 10% of your bi-weekly gross pay. Each year the deductions commence in October and run through May for a total of 16 deductions.  Also, note the YTD amount for Escrow Deductions commencing with October through May is continuous; it doesn’t zero out at the start of the new year in January.  The YTD balance reflected in June of each year is the total amount deducted for Escrow.

Once you select your option, you will not be able to change that option. You will only be allowed to discontinue. Any discontinuations that are requested throughout the year will be automatically refunded between one (1) to two (2) pay periods. Once you have selected an option you cannot change until the following school year. If you discontinue during the school year you can’t re-enroll until the next school year. If you are enrolled in the four (4) check option you can’t request for a one (1) check refund during the month of June, your refund will be processed on the first check in July.

No Exceptions and No other arrangements can be made.
