I need to know wich other word or words I can use to express this: "to get salary" What I mean is how do I say that some one is getting his/or her salary. For example how can I this in English: Hoy voy a cobrar mi salario.

It would depend on the context. If you are writing to a prospective employer about a job and you are not sure if it is a "paid position" you might say: "Is this a salaried position?" or "Is this a paid position?" These are simple statements of fact: "I earn income." "I get a salary." "I make money (doing xyz)." " I get paid for it." " I get paid for doing xyz."

'earn income' Note that a salary is usually considered pay for non-manual labor. It is not exactly the same thing as 'pay' or 'income', but 'earn income' is closest to what you want, I think.
