Your pay statement includes a number of sub-headings that will show the payroll deductions being withheld from your paycheck, as well as the benefits being paid by Bainbridge State College.
Before Tax Deductions
Items that are listed below the ‘Before Tax Deductions’ heading are deductions that lower your taxable wages. They are calculated prior to specific tax calculations.
Some pre-tax deductions affect federal and state income tax, Medicare, and Social Security taxes. Examples of these types of deductions are dental, vision, and medical insurance, FSA and HSA deductions. Other pre-tax deductions affect only federal and state income tax and are not exempt from Medicare and Social Security. These deductions are primarily the retirement deductions such as TRS and ORP.
After Tax Deductions
Items that are listed below the ‘After Tax Deductions’ heading are deductions that do not affect taxable wages in any way. They are calculated and deducted after your taxes are calculated and deducted. Examples of after-tax deductions are the Georgia Defined Contribution Plan (GDCP), Dependent Life, Garnishments, and supplemental insurance premiums such as long-term disability, supplemental life, and long-term disability insurance.
Other Benefits and Information
Benefits provided by Bainbridge State College appear under the ‘Other Benefits and Information’ heading. These benefits include the employer portion of retirement plans such as TRS and ORP, basic life premiums, long-term disability, and the employer share of medical premiums paid by BSC.
