What is ePayroll?

ePayroll is an online system integrated within LiteBlue, the official USPS employee portal. It serves as your one-stop shop for accessing all things related to your paycheck:

  • Track Earnings: Stay informed about your income with detailed breakdowns of your regular pay, overtime hours (if applicable), night differential pay (if applicable), and any allowances you may be entitled to. You can also see deductions for taxes, health insurance premiums, and any voluntary contributions you may be making (e.g., Thrift Savings Plan).
  • Year-End Tax Documents: Tax season doesn’t have to be stressful. ePayroll provides access to essential year-end tax documents like W-2s, ensuring a smooth and accurate filing process. These documents reflect your total earnings for the year, federal and state income taxes withheld, Social Security and Medicare contributions, and any other relevant taxable amounts.

Beyond the Basics: Leveraging ePayroll’s Full Potential

While ePayroll simplifies access to your paycheck, it offers functionalities that extend beyond simply viewing paystubs. Here are some additional ways you can leverage ePayroll’s features:

  • Track Pay History: Analyze trends in your earnings over time. This can be helpful for budgeting purposes or understanding how overtime pay impacts your overall income.
  • Monitor Withholdings and Deductions: Review your deductions to ensure accuracy and keep track of your contributions to various plans (e.g., health insurance, TSP).
  • Manage Tax Elections: During designated enrollment periods, you may be able to adjust your federal tax withholding elections through ePayroll. This allows you to fine-tune the amount withheld from your paychecks throughout the year, potentially reducing the need for a large tax refund or minimizing the risk of owing taxes come filing season.
