• In the US yearly is how it's usually stated. In other words your annual pay. However pay periods can vary from weekly, bi weekly, twice a month, or monthly. Bi weekly is by far the most common. Government jobs are usually monthly.

• Im bi weekly so my salary is just that one check or the whole month.
I get paid. Twice a month

• For bi-weekly your paycheck would be your annual salary divided by 26. Twice a month it would be divided by 24.

Let's say your annual salary is 50K.

If you get paid bi-weekly, your check would be 50,000 / 26 = 1923. You will get that every two weeks, probably every second Friday.

If you get paid twice a month, it would be 50,000 / 24 = 2083. You would get that twice a month. It is most commonly on the 1st and 15th of the month, or the 15th and last day of the month (depending on the length of the month).

If you are paid monthly, it would be 50,000 / 12 = 4166. You would get that once a month, probably on the 1st or last day of the month.

• Also, salary can mean different things in different countries. In the US, it means a fixed amount that you get no matter how many hours you work. Your paycheck will always be the same amount.

There is also hourly, which means you get paid by how many hours you work. Your paycheck can be different every time depending on how many hours you work.

In some countries, people seem to use the word salary to mean either one of those. So it's basically a synonym for pay or wages.
