Employment Verification

UCPath uses The Work Number to provide verification of employment for UC employees. Please note that if you have not been employed with UC since January 2019, you must contact the Records Management team for past employment verification.

Current employees (or those who departed UC after January 2019) should log in to UCPath and select "Income & Taxes" from the menu, then select "Verification of Employment." 

You will be directed to the following instructions under "How to Provide Proof of Your Employment and Income:"

Please provide your employment verifier the following information:

  • Inform them that UC uses the The Work Number
  • Provide them the University of California Employer Code: 15975
  • Provide them your Social Security Number

In some instances, you may also need to create a "Salary Key" in order to complete an income verification. If your employment verifier requests a salary key, please follow these steps:

  1. Log in to The Work Number as an employee.
  2. Enter the following information:
    • UC Employer Code: 15975
    • User ID: Your Social Security Number
    • Personal PIN: Your birthday (MMDDYYYY).
  3. Select the "Create a Salary Key" option.
  4. Provide your verifier the six-digit salary key.

Open Enrollment 2021

Open Enrollment 8AM Oct 29 - 5PM Nov 24

Open Enrollment (OE) 2021 is from 8am on October 29 to 5pm on November 24, 2020. OE is supported by the People & Culture Benefits team, and more information is available on the People & Culture website

There are a few things you can do to prepare for Open Enrollment:

  1. Log in to UCPath before Open Enrollment begins, and make sure you have your security questions set up (CalNet authentication required). If you need assistance for any reason, you'll be able to get in touch with the UCPath Center before the busy Open Enrollment period starts.
  2. Plan to beat the rush! Last year, 43% of enrollments took place in the final two days. Plan to make your selections early in the Open Enrollment period so you have time to get questions answered or issues resolved.
  3. For new employees, or employees who just want a refresher, watch a live UCPath demo that covers how to access and navigate UCPath, and reviews some of the many self-service functions for employees.

Personal Pay Card

If direct deposit is not a good option for you, you may want to consider receiving your pay via a Personalized Pay Card. 

A Personalized Pay Card is a Visa prepaid debit card. Once your card is set up, funds will become available on payday morning, allowing you to receive your pay faster and more securely than a paper paycheck. You can withdraw funds from an ATM, and there are tools available to manage your card and funds. 

To enroll for a Personalized Pay Card, you will need to complete the Wage Payment Consent Form and submit it through an inquiry in UCPath Online. These instructions provide details on how to enroll. 

Security Access Requests

Once your employee has completed the relevant trainings, you may request UCPath access for them. Initiate any new UCPath access requests directly in SARA (System Access Request Application). Review the SARA for UCPath guide for more information and a link to SARA.

Tracker I-9

Tracker I-9 is a new online tool for UC's to manage and increase compliance of the Federal I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form. Tracker I-9 went live with UCPath. 

For more information on Tracker I-9, visit the Berkeley Regional Services website.

W-2 and 1095 Forms

W-2 Forms

View Electronic W-2

For each year that you were enrolled to receive your W-2/W-2c electronically, you will be able to view the document in UCPath. Navigate to Employee Actions > Income and Taxes > View Onilne W-2/W-2C.

Please note that W-2s from 2019 and prior years can be found in At Your Service Online (AYSO) if you were enrolled to receive the form electronically.

 

Enroll to Receive Electronic W-2

Visit UCPath and click on Employee Actions > Income and Taxes > Enroll to Receive Online W-2.

  • Verify your current status. If your current status says CONSENT RECEIVED, then you do not have to do anything – you are already enrolled.

  • If your current status is blank, then you must follow the directions on the screen to sign up.

  • Check that your email address is up-to-date.

Once you’ve signed up, all notifications about your W-2/W-2c will be sent to your preferred email address on file in the UCPath system.


1095 Forms

Unlike the W-2 form, 1095 forms are for your information and records only. Read more about the IRS 1095 Forms.

UC Berkeley employees will receive printed copies via U.S. mail. Online access is not available through UCPath. You may receive an additional 1095-B form directly from your health care provider. 

Please note that 1095s from 2019 and prior years can be found in At Your Service Online (AYSO) if you were enrolled to receive your W-2 form electronically.
