Payroll Services Direct Deposit

Payroll direct deposit is required for all UAB employees including those working outside the state of Alabama. Employees may create and/or edit direct deposit accounts using Oracle Self Service Applications. If direct deposit information is not received prior to the first payment, a check will be mailed to the employee's address of record. Subsequent checks will be held in the Payroll Services office until direct deposit information is entered into the Oracle system.

Select, from the following, the appropriate state withholding form and federal form W-4. Once completed, you send the forms to Payroll Services by fax at (205) 975-7417 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

UAB/UAB Medicine Telecommuting Guidelines

Telecommuting is a voluntary work arrangement between management and an employee, not an entitlement, and is based on the needs of the job, work group, and organization. The position’s job duties, obligations, and responsibilities will remain unchanged. This arrangement is not a company-wide benefit, and in no way changes the terms and conditions of employment with the University of Alabama at Birmingham (“UAB”) or UAB Medicine. These Telecommuting Guidelines set minimum requirements. Departments or business units within UAB/UAB Medicine may adopt more stringent requirements for telecommuting. See the UAB Human Resources Policies & Handbooks website for more details on telecommuting.
