You can download your payslip from the PASS self-service system. Contact your salary administrator if you have any questions.
Payment of salary supplements
Salary supplements (e.g. hourly rates, student remuneration, scholarships, overtime, leave of absence, tax adjustment, etcetera) should be requested either via PASS or on paper, so your salary administrator has all the necessary payroll information no later than the 10th of the month. This guarantees payment at the same time as that month's salary.
Payment of travel expenses and personal expenses
To be reimbursed as swiftly as possible for any costs you incurred in relation to your work, travel expenses and personal expenses are paid out on two occasions each month: either together with your regular salary, or sometime between the 3rd and 6th of the month, depending on the days of the week.
Frequently asked questions about salary payment
What do I do if I wish to increase my tax contribution?
In PASS, you can request an increase in the tax being deducted from your salary each month.
This could be beneficial if you have income from other sources beside your salary from Umeå University and are often served with outstanding tax in your income tax return.
How to increase your tax contribution:
- Log in to PASS.
- Go to the menu My page > Personal data and fill out the fields marked Voluntary tax.
- Specify the sum per month or a percentage of your salary and add from and until dates in the specified format.
Please note that such an increase in tax deduction is added to your preliminary tax following applicable tax rates.
