UA College Savings Plan - Payroll Deduction

We are excited to announce that the UA College Savings Plan recently launched an enhancement which allows employees to select "Payroll Deduction" as a funding method through our online new account set up process. This is great news for UA Employees who want to set up a new account online and fund it through payroll deduction. 

Because the set up experience online is not unique to UA employees we wanted to point out that you may receive an unfamiliar external form from people who complete the online process. We know that this may cause confusion for people going through the online set up experience and we will work to identify a solution. In the interim, if any UA College Savings Plan forms are received by a PPA, payroll technician or HR office, please forward them to our office and we will follow up accordingly with the employee. 

The correct UA employee form (The UA College Savings Plan Employee Payroll Deduction Request Form) is located on the HR payroll forms page.
