How to View My Paychecks

Viewing your paycheck stub online is ideal if your earnings are direct deposited.

Paycheck stubs are records of your earnings to date from your employer. The stub contains such information as your gross and net earnings, taxes withheld and any charitable contributions you authorized to be deducted from your pay. Many companies allow employees to view paycheck stubs online. Some sites are maintained by the company; while others are maintained by payroll management companies, such as Ceridian and ADP. You can view your past and current paychecks online within minutes using basic information.


Step 1

Ask your supervisor for the website to view your earnings statements. You may also obtain the website from the payroll or human resources department at your company.
