Before you get too eager to go out and spend it, take this opportunity to double-check it for any problems sooner rather than later.

Not only is this the time when errors are most likely to happen, but by spotting them now you can save yourself a ton of hassle later on:

You d be surprised, but HR people and Payroll people are actually human and make mistakes from time to time.

If it s not, bring it to their attention the very same day-even if it s for more.

If it s for less, you re being accidentally cheated.

Yes, people sometimes don t notice errors for years and it s a huge mess by then.

If part of your paycheck is taken out monthly for benefits like a retirement plan or health insurance, make sure those deductions are present and accurate.
