2015 Summer Insurance
Summer Insurance premiums for eligible faculty members and graduate student employees who are paid on a nine-month basis will be deducted on the June 1 paycheck. The university will contribute the employer portion of premium sharing towards eligible employees' summer insurance so that the monthly cost for coverage will not change. Human Resource Services (HRS) sent Summer Insurance Notices by email on April 24th that provided more detailed information. Please contact the Human Resource Service Center at 512-471-4772 if you have any questions about your summer insurance coverage.

Toopher Security Enhancements
The University of Texas at Austin has implemented Toopher, a two-factor authentication tool as a way to provide added security for certain UT Direct online services. My W-2 and My Paycheck Distribution/Bank Info-Payroll now require the use of Toopher in order to protect employees’ sensitive payroll data. To log in to these pages, users must enter their UT EID and password, and then authenticate using Toopher. Users must have access to a mobile phone to use Toopher’s text messaging / SMS option, or a smartphone or tablet to use the Toopher App. Users may also use the Printed One-Time Passcodes option, which does not require a mobile phone or smartphone.

Information about setting up two-factor authentication is available on the ITS website and the ITS Help Desk can be contacted with questions related to this. Basic instructions for accessing the payroll webpages using Toopher are also available online.

For employees who cannot use Toopher, alternate processes will continue to be available:

Campus-wide notification regarding two-factor authentication from the Chief Information Security Officer can be found here.
