Size of retro check

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by 30yearstolife, Apr 23, 2014.

  1. I did a quick calculation using past paycheck info on UPSers...

    I made about $60,000 working as a driver since August 1, 2013 at $32.29 per hr.

    So $60,000 X $.70 divided by $32.29 = $1,301 gross Retro check

    So about the same as a mythical 40 hour paycheck (40 x 32.29=$1292)

    Ya, the retro check would be about equal to a regular check plus or minus some ot.

    since august 1 2013 I have:
    1440 hours of straight time
    302 hours of overtime.

    about 1325$ if I did my math correctly.

    Will get hosed with 40% tax and other deductions. I'm hoping for a 6-700$ check. anything more and i'll be happy.

  7. When they have issued "extra" checks in the past (contract signing bonus checks) a greater % of taxes were taken out than from normal checks.

    I figure if they over-withhold tax on the extra check I will just get it back at tax filing time. I have quite a few exemptions so I am hoping for $900 after taxes.
  8. TOTAL INCOME AFTER AUGUST multiplied by .7 divided by strait time hourly wage = Retro check amount

    It is calculated in the equation, it will actually give you more straight time hours than actually worked, and no OT hours. Good math.
