Earnings Statement Sample
Your earnings statement provides detailed information on additions to and subtractions from your gross salary or wage to arrive at the net pay. Net pay is your “take home” pay. It also provides cumulative payroll information in the Year-To-Date sections of Earnings, Taxes, Before/After Tax Deductions and Employer Paid Benefits.
The Hours and Earnings box provides detail on all earnings codes paid to you in your gross salary/wage. The Taxes and Deductions boxes provide detailed information on all the deductions from your gross salary/wage. The Employer Paid Benefits box outlines the benefits paid on your behalf by the university.
