Check Stubs and W-2's Now Available on Self Service Website
All employees can view their pay stubs and prior years W2's online via the Self
Service Website. The website address is: https://employee.uga.edu .
You must have obtained a new strengthened MyID password in
order to utilize the website. To accomplish this, please go
to: http://eits.uga.edu/access_and_security/myid. You will also need to
provide answers to personal questions that further substantiate
Employees who have direct deposit receive an electronic notification (e-mail)
of the availability of the pay stub online. Direct deposit is mandatory for all benefit-eligible employees.
for Direct Deposit form should be completed within 30 days of hire.
The completed form should be sent to the Payroll Department in the Business Services
Building. The Payroll Department will process your form quickly but you should
allow approximately three weeks for your direct deposit to begin. The delay is
required by the banking industry in order to allow sufficient time for your information
to be transmitted through the electronic banking system initially without funds.
This procedure helps to ensure that no problems are encountered related to your
account number or your bank's routing number. Any noted problems can then be
resolved prior to the transmission of funds.
Utilization of the electronic pay stub saves the University
money by reducing the number of forms that must be purchased,
stored, printed, accounted for, and distributed. Since the
University issues more than 300,000 payroll payments each year,
the savings can be substantial. The current issues related
to virus detection software concerns about the attachments
will be eliminated, and employees will no longer need to provide
a password to Payroll to access their pay stub since they will
use the MyID password.
The electronic check stubs include additional information
on the total value of the employee’s compensation including
University paid benefits. Employees can also access prior period paycheck
stubs. Additional enhancements are also anticipated for the
website as further development is accomplished.
