Acorns, Aug. 25, 2022 Marguerita Cheng, CFP® Pro, is featured in today’s article by Sophia Pitt, who writes, “If you get paid biweekly as a W-2 employee, there are usually two glorious months out of the year when you get three paychecks instead of two. The months you take home three checks will depend on your pay schedule.
