Job Description for Payroll & Benefits Specialist

Payroll and benefits specialists handle accounting and finance tasks related to business operation and taxes, especially in regards to filing and distribution of audits, payroll, and W-2s. They maintain payroll data, prepare checks, obtain relevant data (such as salary adjustments), and help prepare W-2s. They may also disseminate information about payroll to staff and conduct trainings as necessary. Customer service skills are sometimes part of this role, as maintaining investment and retirement funds are occasionally required. Depending on the industry, payroll specialists may be employed in human resources, warehouse/shipping (due to experience with operation software, shipping systems, and related systems), or within their own department (payroll). This position is generally full time, although overtime may be required as deadlines approach.
