viewing paystubs

My employer sends me emails of my pay stubs, and I can't open them since they contain an embedded password when trying to open it using an acrobat reader. My employer doesn't know the password or how to disable it.


I've had my employer print the pay stub out, then scan and email a copy of it to me.

Greetings, @Anonymous.


May I ask which online paycheck product are you trying to access? Was it QuickBooks Workforce (formerly ViewMyPaycheck) or Paycheck Records


If you're using Paycheck Records, here's how to reset your employee's log in for pay stub access:

  1. Visit: 
  2. Click on Forgot Password link. 
  3. Enter your user ID or email address, then click Continue

Once completed, you’ll receive and email notification containing a temporary password and login instructions.


If you’re unable to reset your password successfully, you may let your employer reset it for you. Here’s how:

  1. Go to Employee’s tab.
  2. Choose the employee name.
  3. In the Paycheck Records access section, select Edit.
  4. Click Reset Password.

On the other hand, if you’re using QuickBooks Workforce, here’s how to reset your password:

  1. Go to:
  2. Click on I forgot my password.
  3. Enter your user name, email address or phone number, then click Continue.
  4. Follow the on-screen instruction to complete the process.

That should do it! This will allow you to view your pay stubs.
