The Voluntary Payroll Deduction (VPD) program is a benefit offered to the state and some education workers, allowing them to request payroll deductions from their paychecks to be paid automatically. Here are some common examples of voluntary payroll plans: Payroll plans offer employees a convenient way to automatically contribute income to an ongoing expense or investment. For example, it`s common for employees to deduct a fixed percentage of income and contribute it to their traditional individual retirement account (IRA) or Roth IRA.

Some payroll plans may also include voluntary and systematic deductions for the purchase of common shares.
