Not Just Numbers: The Benefits of Understanding Your Paycheck

Ever wonder what all those numbers on your pay stub mean? Anyone receiving a paycheck should understand the information included on their pay stub and review it regularly to make sure that you are receiving the money you’ve earned and are also paying the correct amount in taxes. Join us for a detailed look at the taxes and deductions your paycheck reflects to help you better understand what it means to be paid legally. Learn the difference between gross pay and net pay, what FICA taxes are, if you have deductions for state sick or family leave, and more. You’ll also learn about the benefits you can miss when you are paid “off the books,” including pre-tax health benefit accounts that reduce taxes for you and your family.
