MCPS offers ePaystub for the convenience of viewing additional pay information online and to provide improved services to employees. There are many benefits:
In general, pay stubs for 2 previous calendar years will always be available in addition to the current calendar year. To assist with filing of income tax, the last pay stub of all calendar years will always be available. Pay stubs are listed 10 per screen page and are in the order from the most recent to the oldest.
Yes, you can print your ePaystub once the ePaystub electronic document is displayed. You may print by selecting the printer icon. You will then be directed to a screen to select the appropriate printer. The printed version of the ePaystub does not require special paper; the document will print on standard “8 ½ by 11” paper.
Please Note: With the retention of previous documents available to you, you will rarely need to print a paper copy.
ePaystub is made available a few days prior to the pay date, typically late in the afternoon on the Monday before the Friday payday. Please be advised: there could be some change to this target date from time to time depending on the pay calendar, calendar schedule changes, holidays, or system outages. Checks issued manually, outside of the normal payroll process, are viewable the same business day or the morning after the check has been issued.
You can view the ePaystub information from your home computer or from any MCPS computer. Please be advised that ePaystub does not support the Firefox Browser and only marginally supports Netscape.
If you do not have a regularly assigned PC, you should speak to your supervisor and/or director to locate an available PC. Additionally, several computers are available for employees in the lobby of the Employee and Retiree Service Center (ERSC).
Yes, the Adobe Acrobat software supports and permits you to save viewed documents. Please keep in mind that you will still need to provide your pay stub document password to access saved files.
If you have problems accessing or printing your ePaystub, you should call the MCPS Help Desk at 301-517-5800. Please note: MCPS cannot provide support for home computers or printers from non-MCPS computers.
The payment number is the sequentially assigned advice/paycheck number that is generated by the payroll system.
The payment date is the date the check is issued and funds are available for withdrawal from your checking and/or savings account. Direct deposit is mandatory for all employees hired on or after February 1, 2001. Direct deposit offers employees the convenience of having your net pay (pay after taxes and deductions) deposited directly into a checking and/or savings account.
The single letter denotes how the check was processed:
The Reported Attendance section of the electronic pay stub displays details of your pay information including days worked, work location, pay codes, and hours as it was reported on your timesheet and entered by the timekeeper.
Two tables have been created for your convenience.
No, you will not be able to make any changes on your ePaystub. Please see the ERSC forms page for applicable MCPS forms. Please send completed forms to the ERSC, 7361 Calhoun Place, Ste. 190, Rockville, MD 20855.
Yes, you are able to view all of your school/work locations and applicable time reported for each position in the Reported Attendance section.
Your ePaystub information has been secured at three levels:
Although MCPS cannot guarantee absolute confidentiality of data transmitted over the public Internet, all data transmissions between your computer and the MCPS server are encrypted and secure.
Your MCPS username and password are unique and should not be shared with anyone. If you should need to change your MCPS password, you can use the myID website.
Please note: After logging into ePaystub, you must enter your employee ID as the password to open the document. This document password is always your employee ID and cannot be changed.
