My Pay

The Office of the State Controller together along with the Office of Information Technology would like to introduce My Pay.

Access to your Electronic Pay Advice Online

My Pay can only be accessed through the State’s network.This function will be available to all employees who have access to a state authorized computer.

Please note that with the implementation of My Pay, the Pay Activity feature of Employee Self-Service will no longer be active.
