Availability of New York State Payroll Online (NYSPO)

Priority: Informational

The Office of the New York State Comptroller recently implemented New York State Payroll Online (NYSPO), a service offered through which allows employees on New York State payroll to access pay stubs, W-2s and other pay information electronically. 

Beginning 9/17/21, CUNY employees on New York State payroll can request activation of their accounts using the following path in CUNYfirst: Human Capital Management > Self Service > New York State Payroll Online

After employees formally submit requests in CUNYfirst, their accounts are estimated to be activated within 15-20 business days.  After accounts are officially activated, confirmations will be sent to employees’ primary business email addresses in CUNYfirst with additional instructions on how to verify their identities and to access NYSPO.  Employees must verify their identities within in order for NYSPO to be accessible within their accounts.

Employees who create their accounts outside of CUNYfirst will experience issues accessing NYSPO.  Additionally, employees with existing accounts for previous/other NYS organizations will need to request an additional account via this process to view their CUNY-pay information.

Please note that a communication will be sent to all Senior College employees on 9/17/21 informing them that NYSPO is available.

Additional NYSPO resources and updates can be found here.  Employees can follow the instructions on this webpage starting with Tab “1. Requesting Account Activation” to begin the process.  If you have any questions, please contact University Payroll Security(
