What is a biweekly pay schedule?

Biweekly – while it may seem obvious from the name, it’s important to understand what this term means for your payroll. A biweekly pay schedule means you pay your team every other week.

The most important thing to remember when choosing a biweekly pay schedule is that you will end up with 26 pay dates in a year. At first blush it may seem like 24, but this is actually when you pay bimonthly, or exactly two times per month. With biweekly there will be a couple months that have three pay dates in them.
