Benefits Break

February 15th, 2015 at 08:14 am

I have only been at my new job a few months and I find I am still getting used to all of the HR and payroll related things. I nearly had a heart attack when I got my paycheck and saw no deductions for my medical, vision, or dental. I know human error happens, but I did not want to deal with a false cancellation which would likely be really annoying if I actually had to use my benefits. Well it turns out my company has so many pay periods in the year that if they deducted the premiums on all of them we would be overpaying. So they just pick a couple to not deduct from and we get to enjoy the extra money. Would it have killed them to put a little blurb on our paystubs as a reminder?! Geez!

    Where I work they give us a sheet at the beginning of each new fiscal year showing exactly what deductions will come out of which paychecks, as well as which paychecks will have nothing come out of them (as they're extra paychecks.) It is very helpful! (I'm looking forward to the one in April - no deductions on the 3rd paycheck!)

    Yes! My company makes a payroll calendar with this info, but they expect you to fish around for it on their cumbersome HR website. I finally found it and agree it is helpful to know these things.
