# Size of retro check

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.

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.

TOTAL INCOME AFTER AUGUST multiplied by .7 divided by strait time hourly wage = Retro check amount

19. ### Brownslave688You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

So you don't work any overtime at all? Lucky you.

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