Practicalities for the USI community

Electronic salary slip

Staff with regular payroll payments can access and view the relevant paycheck in digital form at


Staff are notified by USI e-mail each time a new document is uploaded on the platform (usually once per month). The platform works as a repository for individual salary statements, which can be viewed, downloaded and printed, allowing you to view, download and print them.

The personal registration code allowing the first access to the platform is indicated:

  • for new employees, on their first payment slip, which is distributed in printed form;
  • for current employees, on the last payment slip received in printed form.


Paper paycheck

Paychecks are no longer distributed in printed form for staff with regular payroll payments.

Printed paychecks will be issued for non-regular or ad-hoc payments (e.g. guest lecturers, hourly employees, contractors).

First-time access

  • go to platform
  • click on “New here? Do you have a registration code?”
  • enter the registration code indicated on the first salary slip
  • enter personal e-mail address ([email protected])
  • set up a personal password for future access

After the first login, SwissSalary Direct sends an automated e-mail message ([email protected]) asking to confirm your account.


Further access

Access through e-mail address and personal password


USI contract termination / renewal and access to platform

Upon termination of employment at USI, access to the platform is provided for up to 180 days from the end of the month in which the last salary is paid.

After 180 days, in the case of a new employment contract with USI, access to the platform is possible with your personal password without having to re-register.
