@peachacid:  I haven’t gotten paid yet this month, but your Social Security contribution should have gone up 2%, from 4.2 to 6.2%.  It will differ by income.

it depends on how much you make.

$30k a year was about $25 a paycheck.

$50k a year was about $40 a paycheck etc etc

if you lost $100, you need to check your stubs.

Unless you make a whole lot of money, your paycheck should not have gone down more than 2%.

Lots of factors could play into it… for example, if you hit the max for OASDI contribution for 2012 you may not have been paying into it at the end of the year, and as this is the start of a new year you would be paying into it again. I would check your check stub when you get it and see what deductions increased.

Mine’s gone down about $25/paycheck. Just got a small raise too, so I’m glad the govt’s stealing most of my raise. :/

Mine went down a little over $40, just after I got my raise for about the same amount. D’OH!

This week’s checks would also be the first to reflect any changes to health care premiums; has your insurance gone up for 2013? My check was $1.52 less this week because of our new premium rate. Don’t pity me. Cool

@MeghN:  good point, I was going to mention this as well. Lucky for us, our premium went down 2%!

Could it be unemployment?  Unemployment taxes are usually a certain % that most people hit pretty quickly, but they start over each year, so you’re first paychecks of 2013 will have unemployment as well as tax increases coming out.

Could your health insurance amount have also gone up?

I third the health insurance– ours went up by about 25% starting in Jan.- After they raised it 10% twice last year… gotta love Anthem Blue Cross. We’re at the point now where individual rates would be cheaper than our small group!
