California State Controller's seal

California Employee Connect (CEC)

CEC is the new employee self-service portal available to all active Civil Service and California State University Employees.  It is a secure self-service portal, which allows employees to view, print, and electronically save their own W-2s, leave balances, direct-deposit earnings statements, and more.

    Earnings Statements

    There are two ways to view/download/print earnings statements:

    • Homepage will show the employee’s most recent three earning statements.
    • Earnings Tab will show the employee’s last 36 months of earnings statements.

    Note: CEC will only show payments processed by the State Controller's Office Payroll System.

    Leave Balances

    Leave balances are only available for employees who use the California Leave Accounting System (CLAS).  Balances shown on CEC will have a month lag of leave information, which is consistent with the employees’ most recent earnings statement.

    W-2s

    Employees can view/download/print copies of their last four years of their W-2s.

    Note: Electronic copies of W-2Cs are not available in CEC yet.  The project team is working on this feature and will communicate a release date as soon as it is available.

    What information do I need to register?
