Ohio State staff to receive cash distribution

President Michael V. Drake, MD, has announced a special, one-time cash distribution for university staff in recognition of their contributions to the advancement of Ohio State’s collaborative strategic plan and in conjunction with the continuing success of the university’s innovative funding and efficiencies program.

The one-time $375 distribution is being provided to all full-time university staff employed as of April 1, 2017, who have an annual salary under $120,000 and a satisfactory, successful or better performance rating.

“Paying forward through excellence is essential to who we are as Buckeyes. Our exceptional staff help define what it means to be a leading national flagship public research university in the 21st century,” Drake said.

Employees paid biweekly will receive the cash distribution in their November 24 pay. Employees paid monthly will receive the cash distribution in their November 30 pay.

Those eligible to receive the cash distribution include staff who:

  • Were hired as of April 1, 2017, and remain on the payroll as of November 10, 2017
  • Hold a full-time equivalency (FTE) of 75 percent or greater
  • Have a successful or satisfactory performance rating in 2017

There are no exceptions to these criteria and no mechanism for appeals.

This discretionary cash distribution will not increase regular base salary, and it will be subject to applicable income taxes. For most recipients, it does not affect retirement contributions or overtime calculations. The Wexner Medical Center administered its established appreciation program separate from this cash distribution.

If you have questions about the cash distribution, contact the Office of Human Resources Customer Service Center at (614) 292-1050 or hr@osu.edu.
