Why send staff their payslips by post?

It has always surprised me that the Government workers have theis monthly payslips posted to their home addresses.

Surely these could be sent online at minimum cost or, as used to happen in the bank where I worked, the payslips would all be sent by internal mail to the section head for them to distribute on pay day.




Why the contribution is important

I don't know how many staff receive their payslips in the post, but the monthly cost of postage must be fairly significant?

    I receive two occupational pensions. One administered by Lancashire County Council has electronic notification of payments and year-end data, so no postal charges and minimal admin handling. Meanwhile, the IOM Government pension scheme posts me monthly payslips when the amount never changes. Where a pensioner lives off-island, a useful earner for foreign Post Offices.
