  • 12.1% - Once a month 136
  • 6.3% - Unpredictably (freelance) 71

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

How often does Uncle Sam pay when one hits 65 and retires? It's all new to me, not having been paid on an orderly basis before now.

I for one am curious as to what you were thinking when you posted this question. Why did you this topic for a poll???

The check for working comes once a week, and the Retirement check (joke) comes once a month.

Does finding a quarter in the cushions on the couch count?

If so...SCORE!

Yup, 1st and 15th. So another in the semi-monthly crowd.

I used to get paid on a monthly basis. Eventually switched to every two weeks. Re-budgeting was a bit tricky, since we got less pay in a given month (except for the two months a year where we got three paychecks), but it was nice for us salary folks to not get screwed on leap year when we worked that extra day for the same monthly check.

Twice per semester. And since I don't work during the summer, that equals four paychecks per year.

I chose bi-weekly because that was the closest.

Move along. Nothing to see here.

Once a month. Mine gets deposited on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. My pensions come on the first of the month, so I get paid twice a month.

I was always told the amount mattered more than the frequency.


Or is that backwards?
