Payroll Information


Closing or Changing your Bank Account Information:

You must change or cancel your direct deposit at least 5 business days prior to a payday to avoid having your funds deposited into a closed/invalid account. If the stop/change was not made in time, a paper check will be generated only after the funds are redirected back to us by your financial institution (there are no exceptions). Your departmental Payroll Coordinator will be contacted when the check is available for pick up.

NOTE: This process normally takes 2-4 business days


W-4 Form:


Go to your ESS, on MyUW.  Click the “Taxes” link that is across the top of the screen.  You can enter your W-4 information (or update it) on this link.


I-9 Form:


Must be paper.  Fill out and turn into the Neuroscience office.  You must have your passport or 2 of these items when you turn in your I-9 form:  driver’s license, school ID with photograph voter’s registration card PLUS a social security card or birth certificate.
