Don't think of compensation as just your biweekly paycheck.  Think of it as what you receive in return for your contribution to the organization---that is, for doing your job!  Compensation often includes more than one component (such as locality pay and differentials) and other factors (such as premium pay or overtime) can affect your overall compensation.  This page will provide you with general information, such as how and when you get paid and how you can have your salary verified.
