Monthly employees: Payday for December 2015 earnings will be Jan. 4, 2016

As a reminder, the pay date for monthly employees for December 2015 earnings will be on Jan. 4, 2016 as Jan. 1 is a bank holiday. For more information about your monthly (or biweekly) paycheck, please visit UCPath and look under “Quick Links” for the current payroll calendar.

Open Enrollment confirmation for 2016 health benefits

Two W-2s for 2015

With the transition to UCPath, UCOP employees will receive two W-2s for 2015. One will be from the previous UCLA system for January through November earnings, and the other will come from UCPath Center for December earnings. New employees whose first paycheck was in December will receive only one W-2.
