Why do I need to file? How does the process work?

 In summary, the requirements as they apply to UAB are:
  • Persons whose base rate of pay at any time during calendar year 2013 was $75,000 or more even if employment during the year was for a period as short as one day
  • Persons whose job includes purchasing or procurement authority
  • Individuals serving as a supervisor (UAB has chosen to identify these individuals as those in job titles that include the term Director, Manager or Supervisor)
  • Persons whose pay and benefits come primarily from UAB Hospital are exempt from the filing requirement.
