Graduate Student Anchor Job Reminder
Benefits-eligible graduate students who have summer anchor jobs and already pre-paid their summer deductions from their June 1 paycheck should retain their anchor job as their primary job throughout the summer, even if they have a new hourly position. This will prevent insurance deductions from being improperly deducted against their hourly jobs during the summer. For more information, refer to the Primary Job Guidance Workday Process Overview (WPO).
