Arizona State Retirement System (ASRS)
A copy of a paycheck stub

NOTE FAA staff use the dollar amount of tips shown on a paycheck stub unless the participant claims a different amount and that amount is verified. Document the case file with the reason the paycheck stub amounts were not used.
 
Third Party Payroll Verification Sources when the employer uses the verification source as its legal agent to provide payroll services or respond to inquiries about employee records. Third party payroll verification sources include, but are not limited to the following:
Corporate Cost Control (CCCVerify)
Verify Advantage (formerly known as VerifyDirect)

NOTE Make a collateral contact to the employer when no response is received with the C005 notice, FAA-0053A form, or the FAA-1701A form. Document the case file(g) with the results of the collateral contact. (See Providing Verification)
