Cal Employee Connect

This is a secure web-based employee self-service portal that is owned and maintained by the State Controller’s Office. The portal is available for all California State employees to view and print earnings statements and W-2 wage and tax statements.

To register, you must have the paycheck number and total deductions from a prior earnings statement. This information is found on the physical earnings statement or through the CMS Employee Resources. Since you must have a paycheck number, you cannot register until your first paycheck has been issued.
