Reminder: Update Your Address for W-2 Mailing

Please visit the myHR Self Service Portal to review and update (as needed) your current home address.  This address will be used for the delivery of your printed 2017 Form W-2.  If you manage temporary employees or student employees, please ensure their addresses are reviewed and updated in myHR as well.

W-4 Reminder for Postdocs, including NIH NRSA Postdocs

Please remember to submit a new Form W-4 to the HR Operations/Payroll Office if your marital status or allowances have changed in 2017 or will change for 2018.  Additionally, for postdocs funded by a fellowship, such as an NRSA training grant or individual fellowship, the stipend is taxable income that is not automatically withheld. You must complete and submit state and federal W-4 forms to Payroll to have taxes withheld. You can submit a new federal and/or state Form W-4 any time throughout the year.  Forms W-4 can be downloaded from the Payroll website and mailed to or dropped off at the HR Operations/Payroll Office on the Chicago and Evanston campuses.
