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.
UA Announces New and Improved Process for Out-of-State Workers
The Work Activity Outside of Alaska Process has gone paperless!!!
A new online approval process has been created for employees that plan to have work activity outside of the state of Alaska.
PPAs, under the direction from the employee's dean/director, will fill out the online form with the requested information to initiate the approval process. The request will be routed through the appropriate vice chancellor and then to Provost Henrichs for approval of faculty positions and to Vice Chancellor Kari Burrell for staff positions.
