Check Stubs vs. Averaged Pay
If the check stubs are provided as proof, but the amounts are all different, use Averaged Pay!
Check Stubs only offers a single amount field and should only be used if the income is the same with every pay period. Example: someone who works on salary and is paid the same amount every pay day.
Averaged Pay locks the Amount field and opens the number of amount fields that matches the Pay Frequency under Income Details. Once each pay amount is entered, NMSOL automatically enters an average into the Amount field.
