New employee electronic transactions save time

Oct. 5, 2009

KALAMAZOO--Beginning Monday, Oct. 12, Western Michigan University employees, retirees and student employees will have secure electronic access to much of their personnel records and information previously available to them only in paper form.

A new link, "Employee Self Service," at the top of the My Self Service channel of GoWMU, the University's secure intranet portal, will take users to several options under personal information, payroll and compensation, and benefits.

Paycheck information moves

Links to "WebCheck," "My W-2" and "My Benefit Elections" in the My Self Service channel will disappear and will be found in Employee Self Service under payroll and compensation, and under benefits. Past paychecks will be available online, but only through wmich.edu/payroll and only until the end of the year.

With the new secure system, employees, retirees and student employees will be able to make changes in their information at their convenience from anywhere with Internet access and submit the changes online, saving time and eliminating paper transactions.

Some new view and change options
  • Home and mailing addresses
  • Phone numbers
  • E-mail addresses
  • Emergency contacts
  • Marital status
  • Name change
  • Paycheck direct deposit information
  • W-4 withholding allowances

A step-by-step reference guide for Employee Self Service was mailed to all regular and part-time employees and retirees at their home addresses and should arrive this week. Reference guides will be distributed through departments to all student and graduate assistant employees.

More information is available at wmich.edu/hr/self-service.
