​​5.6.10 Payroll Deductions

​​Certain deductions are made from employee paychecks each period and are itemized on the paycheck stubs. Standard deductions include federal and state income taxes, which vary with the number of dependent exemptions claimed, and Social Security. The Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) requires that a specified percentage up to an annual limit must be deducted from an employee's gross compensation for Social Security benefits and matched by the employer. Other deductions may be reflected on the paystubs as applicable.

All archdiocesan employees are covered by Social Security​, but diocesan priests and women and men religious are subject to rules and procedures particular to them, which are addressed in Priest Personnel Policies and Guidelines​​​​​​​​​ and Religiou​s Staff.  Copies of ​Religious Compensation​ schedules are available from the Office o​f the Vicar for Clergy​ and Office of the Vicar for Women Religious.​​ Deacons who are employed by locations are considered regular employees and are paid accordingly.

In addition, employees may authorize voluntary pre-tax deductions from their paychecks, such as for medical, dental, or vision insurance​, etc.​​
