View Paycheck – available to all employees. Paycheck information will be displayed on the Monday before paychecks are distributed.

The printed screenshots should be useable by any financial institution requiring copies of your recent payroll records. Hard copy pay-stubs will continue to be distributed to all employees.
Update Address – This option can be used as an alternate method of notifying HR and Payroll of an address change. If this feature is used, the Personnel Data Update Form no longer needs to be completed and submitted to HR or Payroll for address changes. Once the self-service address change is accepted, a statement identifying other vendor services contact information will be available. You must separately notify your Union and all other retirement and insurance providers of your address change.

- Next you must scroll to the bottom of the page and under "Previously Submitted Leave Requests", you must now click in the "Select" button and Submit to Supervisor. Once you have done this, it will now appear on your calendar with a "P" for Pending, which means your supervisor can now see your request.
