Salary Funding
While officially classified as temporary, full-time employees, Housestaff are exempt from the State Personnel Act and are not subject to classification by the Office of State Personnel. Funding for Housestaff salaries is provided from several sources. Some Housestaff are funded by UNC Hospitals, while others are paid from clinical funds, grants, and other outside sources, such as military branches and Veterans Administration Hospitals.  
Social Security
According to Federal law, you are covered by the Social Security Act, and will be required to contribute to this program through payroll deduction. 


Income Taxes
As employees, North Carolina and Federal income taxes will be withheld from your payroll check. You will receive a W-2 form from the Department of Payroll annually in January.  
The Hospitals and University are set up to directly deposit paychecks into checking or savings accounts with almost any bank or credit union in North Carolina. UNC Hospitals requires all employees to participate in direct payroll deposit. Housestaff on UNC Hospitals' payroll should turn in a UNC Hospitals request form to the Office of Graduate Medical Education. Direct deposit from the Hospitals takes one pay period to implement. Once your direct deposit is established, a receipt of the deposit will be placed in your Hospitals mailbox each payday. Residents and subspecialty residents on UNC Hospitals' payroll are paid on a biweekly basis.  
Veterans Administration Benefits
UNC Hospitals is approved to enroll veterans, participants, military, and other eligible persons in the ACGME approved residency training programs under provisions of Titles 38 and 10 United States code.
