Online Payslips FAQs

Q 1 - Why has the HSE introduced online payslips?

The development is part of  an initiative to further modernise and improve payroll services. In addition to providing online convenience to view your payslip, the initiative is helping to achieve payroll savings and efficiencies. Users who are benefitting from this service are also helping the environment by reducing the organisation’s paper requirements.

The service allows staff and retirees to access their payslips and payslip history online at their convenience

Online payslips are now available in all payroll areas with the exception of the South East where they will come online in the near future.

Q 2 - How are staff and retirees accessing their payslips online?

Staff and retirees access their payslips online via a dedicated webpage. You can log on at your own convenience and view your payslip securely once you have registered. To register just click on your payroll area.

You will only be able to view your own payslip via a combination of your Personnel Number / User ID and a password.

Q 3 – If you opt to register online will you be able to print your payslip?

Yes once you are registered online you will be able to print your payslip. You will no longer receive a paper payslip issued from payroll.

Q 4 - Have the Revenue Commissioners and the Department of Social Protection indicated their acceptance of the online payslip replacing the paper payslip?

The Revenue Commissioners have accepted online payslips for a number of years and now also accept online P60s. The Department of Social Protection has itself benefitted from on-line payslips since 2009.

Q 5 – Will I be able to access a copy of my P60 online?

HSE staff and retirees can currently access P60s.

Q 6 – Where else in the public and semi-state sectors are online payslips available?

In the semi state sector online payslip users include Bus Eireann, Enterprise Ireland and IDA. Online payslips and end of year documents are also common place in the multinational sector.  

Q 7 - Do all HSE staff and retirees need to register to receive their payslip online?
