Instructions: Fill in the boxes below that apply to you to convert your actual pay or your payrate. Note: Gross pay is what you make before any deductions are made (taxes, etc.).
There are 12 months and 52 weeks in a year. Generally, most people think of a month as having 4 weeks. But 4 weeks multiplied by 12 months = 48 weeks vs. 52 weeks. So, to be more accurate we use 4.333 weeks per month.
