You may notice a new look for certain sections of your 2014 paychecks. Learn more in the summary below or visit the HR website to see a sample paycheck.
In the past, your paycheck displayed your time off balances. For 2014, time off balances will no longer be included on paychecks. To check your time off balances, go to C2HR and click on the “Time Off Balances” link in the right sidebar.
Before-tax deductions. This section of your paycheck shows deductions for your Medical, Dental, Vision, and Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) payroll premiums. Retirement and Flexible Spending Account deductions also are included in this section. Monthly paid employees will have deductions taken from each monthly paycheck (no change from 2013). Biweekly paid employees will have deductions taken out of their first two checks. Weekly paid employees will have deductions taken out of their first four checks. If employees have a third or fifth check during a month, that check will only show a deduction for Flexible Spending Accounts and Retirement.
After-tax deductions. This section shows deductions for your Long-Term Disability and Short-Term Disability payroll premiums.
Employer paid benefits and other. This section shows the portion of your benefits that Vanderbilt pays. This money does not come out of your paycheck. If you receive the $25 per month HRA (for employees hired on or before Dec. 31, 2004), that amount will appear in this section. While paychecks in 2013 included LTD Flex Credits under the Earnings section, paychecks in 2014 will have that amount listed as Long Term Disability under this section.
