Deductions / Garnishments

Deductions / Garnishments

There are two types of payroll deductions - voluntary and involuntary.

Voluntary Deductions

Voluntary deductions include your cost for the benefits coverage that you have, such as health, dental and LTD. Voluntary deductions also include the convenience deductions you have requested, such as United Way contributions, or purchases at Computer Showcase.

Involuntary Deductions

Involuntary deductions are those over which neither the University of Michigan nor the employee has control. They are required by law. For a list of the types of involuntary deductions and their rules, please see the Resources section.

NOTE: All involuntary withholding requests should be addressed to The University of Michigan, Payroll Office, G395 Wolverine Tower-Low Rise, 3003 S. State St., Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1279
