Changes to Pay Stubs

The Payroll Office, Human Resources and ISC have developed a new, more informative pay stub for Penn faculty and staff. The redesigned pay stub will be easier to understand and provides information in a more logical manner than the current pay stub. The new pay stub will be implemented the week of November 19. Any check or advice that you receive after November 19 will reflect the new design.

A few highlights will include the following:

  • Your Social Security Number will be removed from the pay stub.
  • The paid-time-off balance will be displayed for weekly paid employees at the point in time the checks were generated.
  • The actual name of the health and welfare plans to which an individual subscribes, including medical, dental & optical, will replace generic descriptions.
  • Longer and more informative descriptions for payments and deductions will replace the short and cryptic abbreviations in place today.
  • Your federal tax status and the number of exemptions will be displayed.
  • Information about deductions has been reorganized into one, easy-to-read section.
