Total Compensation Statement

Starting in 2020, University Human Resources prepares an annual total compensation statement for benefit-eligible employees. The total compensation statement is your personalized and confidential statement that shows the value of the compensation and benefits package you received as a valued employee for the previous calendar year. The statement was sent to your William & Mary email address as a PDF attachment with the subject, "Your Total Compensation Statement" from AskHR@wm.edu.

The PDF is password-protected; to open the PDF, enter your Banner ID number (starting with 93). Your Banner ID number can be found on your Tribe Card or within personalinfo.wm.edu.

We are holding virtual information sessions via Zoom on these dates and times:

Please note, this statement is not a regulatory or tax document and should not be used for income tax preparation. Employees need to use information found in their W-2 to complete their tax returns.

I had multiple jobs this past calendar year. Does the regular and potential additional pay show my most current job or both?

Both.

My salary changed last year or it's different from what I expected. Why does my regular pay not reflect this? Have I been paid incorrectly?

The regular pay is based on your earnings, not your salary, for the calendar year. As a gentle reminder, the university issued salary increases in 2021, so there may be a slight difference in the statement.

How is the “University Paid Benefits as Percentage of Earnings” calculated?

This percentage is equal to the total Health & Wellness Benefits and Retirement Benefits divided by the total Regular Pay and Potential Additional Pay (both paid by the university).

I am not enrolled in health coverage, but I have amounts showing for Health & Wellness Benefits. What does this include?

Health & Wellness Benefits includes not just health coverage but also group life insurance (paid by the university), optional life insurance (paid by the employee), long-term disability (paid by the university and employee), and retiree health insurance credit (paid by the university).
