UAB IT blocks the sending of emails from @uab.edu addresses if the message appears to contain restricted information such as Social Security numbers or credit card numbers.

W-2 forms and other tax documents include restricted information and will be blocked.

Sending restricted information via email can make you or others more vulnerable to identity theft – and is against UAB policy. Social Security numbers and credit card numbers are classified as Restricted/PHI under the Data Classification Rule.

You can access this information securely thorough BlazerNet or Oracle.
