Former Employees

Former employees can access their UC employment information after they have separated from UC by logging in to the UCPath via a Former Employee account. Additional information is also available on UCNet

When an employee's status changes from Active to Inactive, UCPath triggers a welcome email/ invitation to the separating employee to create an account in the Former Employee Portal. This email is sent to the "preferred" personal email in UCPath or the first populated personal email. If no email address was provided, the former employee must contact UCPath to provide an email address to create a Former Employee Account.

Things to Remember: 

  • Former employees have the option to create a Former Employee Account in UCPath for one year following their separation from the UC
  • The Former Employee Portal is available to the employee for three years after they separate from the UC and create the account
  • The Former Employee Portal provides access to: 
  1. Personal Information Summary
  2. History of earnings statements and; 
  3. W-2 history

Recently, some people have experienced login issues that resulted in re-registration or password reset requests. If you are having trouble accessing the portal, please review these common issues and resolutions below.

Date of Birth

When entering the Date of Birth during the registration process or password reset, the format must be mm/dd/yyyy. UCPath Center reports that some users were entering mmddyyyy; which resulted in locked accounts. Be sure to include forward slashes (/) when manually entering the date of birth or select date of birth from the calendar; which will auto format to mm/dd/yyyy.

Invite to Register

If you did not have a personal email listed in UCPath when your employment ended, you likely did not receive an invitation to register for the Former Employee portal. If this is the case, you will need to contact UCPath Center for assistance. If you are not able to get through by phone, you can email the UCPath Center at, which will create a case in the system.

Stale Request

Users clicking the browser back button from the Former Employee portal login page encountered a stale request. To resolve this issue, return to the Former Employee portal login page and re-start the login process.
