PayInfo is a web-based application that allows state employees to access their personal payroll information through the Internet. It is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Generally, the current pay period information is updated the day prior to the availability of your funds (i.e. payday).

Accessing PayInfo

You will need a User ID (your employee ID found on your pay advice) and a password to log in to PayInfo.

·         Go to www.payInfo.state.ma.us.

·         Click "Continue" to go to the log in screen.

·         In the User ID box, enter your Employee ID

·         In the Password box, enter your password. The first time you log in, you must use your default password supplied by your agency's security officer (Payroll Manager). You will then be prompted to change your password.

·         Click "Continue" to view the PayInfo News screen.

·         Click "Continue" to reach the welcome screen which contains a summary from your last four pay advices.

·         To view a payroll advice for a specific pay period, click on the appropriate Pay Period End Date button.


Change Your Password

You are required to change your password when you log in for the first time or if it has been reset by your security officer. It is also a good idea to change your password whenever you think it may have been compromised.

Your password should consist of 8 to 15 alphanumeric characters. Special characters, such as *, &, %, and $ are not allowed. Try to use a combination of letters and numbers that are meaningful to you.

If you forget your password, contact your security officer (Lynn Bromley, lbromley@worcester.edu, or 508-929-8061) who will reset your password to your original default password.


PayInfo is safe, secure, and always available. All information is encrypted over the Internet. It only becomes clear on your PC after you enter your User ID and password.

No one other than your security officer and you can change your password.

Your social security number does not appear anywhere.

Your bank account number(s) does not appear on the screen when viewing your pay advice.
