W4 Form


Employees may update tax withholding, personal information, display pay statements and more at Employee Self Service (ESS) through UC Flex.

Notice from Payroll:

Prior to pay day you can view your pay statement in Employee Self Service (ESS).  The processing schedule allows for biweekly paid employees to see pay statements 4 days prior to pay day (typically Friday) and monthly paid employees to see pay statements 7 days prior to pay day.  When you review your pay statements, please bring any questions you have to the attention of your management and pay special attention to direct deposit banking information and your address of residence.  While you are in ESS, please take the opportunity to sign up for online W2’s and/or direct deposit if you have not already done so.
