What is Net Pay?

Net pay is the amount of money an employer gives to an employee after taxes and other deductions have been taken out. In other words, net pay is the amount of money left after deductions have been made.

Issues that impact net pay include voluntary deductions, such as healthcare premiums, retirement fund contributions, and HSA contributions, and involuntary deductions, such as federal and state income taxes, Medicare and Social Security taxes, and wage garnishments. 

Net pay is the difference between gross pay and taxes, health insurance, and other benefits.
