As an employee, it is required that you keep your pay stubs at least for a year even though there is no federal law that mandates employers to provide pay stubs to employees.

If you have your pay stubs, they can come handy when you need to submit a proof of income letter. Also, with your check stubs for all pay periods, you can calculate your W-2 withholdings while filing taxes. While pay stubs are useful in such ways, they are not financial documents that you should keep it forever.

So, it is always good to hold on to your pay stubs for at least a year till you pay your taxes, and can later discard them. You can sign up with 123PayStubs to create your pay stubs easily and quickly in minutes.
