The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, payslip is a monthly generated document that shows the much a teacher earns. The payslip is generated from the TSC payroll and can be downloaded from the TSC payslips portal (T-pay) by using the address https://payslip.tsc.go.ke/.
The payslip contains such crucial information as the teacher’s monthly gross pay, allowances and deductions. deductions from teachers’ pay include: Statutory deductions (like Pay as you earn -income tax, National Hospital Insurance Fund- NHIF) and third party deductions.
Teachers remit various amounts to third parties that include teachers’ unions, SACCOs and other deductions. The difference between third party deductions and statutory deductions is that third party deductions are not necessarily mandatory while statutory deductions are mandatory.
You can for example opt out of a deduction towards a Burial Benevolent Fund (BBF) but the same can not happen for individual income tax.
