Checklist: Review Your Paystubs
A pay stub is a valuable source of information when building financial models and evaluating cash flow. It provides insight into income, tax, retirement savings, various insurance costs, etc. A periodic paycheck review can be a productive exercise, demonstrating how your earnings translate into net pay. Reviewing your paystub can help you understand the automated tax withholdings, savings, and payments that you make each pay period, and any employer benefits that augment your compensation package.
