What is a pay stub? It might seem obvious, but it's worth diving into the details. Understanding your pay stub can help you manage your finances effectively.

A pay stub is an itemized statement that an employee receives showing their gross wages, taxes withheld from the paycheck, deductions for benefits, and net pay. Your pay stub breaks down your total compensation into different components, allowing you to see how much you earned and what deductions were taken.
