What is Annualized Salary?

Annualized salary is a term used to describe the total amount of money an employee is paid in a year, based on their salary or hourly wage. Annualized salary is typically calculated by multiplying an employee's salary or hourly wage by the number of pay periods in a year, or by multiplying their hourly wage by the number of hours they are expected to work in a year.

Annualized salary is often used to compare the pay of different employees or to determine the total cost of an employee to an organization. It can also be used to determine the employee's pay rate for purposes such as overtime pay or to calculate retirement benefits.

Annualized salary does not include additional pay or benefits that an employee may receive, such as bonuses, commissions, or paid time off. These additional forms of pay and benefits are generally calculated separately from an employee's annualized salary.
