If needed, information about obtaining or determining a uniqname and U-M (level 1/Kerberos) password is available on the ITCS Web site.

Updating Federal W-4 Information on the Web

In most instances, an employee may update his or her Federal W-4 information using Wolverine Access. First, the employee must follow the steps above to view the W-4 information. Then, the employee can make changes to their own Federal W-4 information and submit them. The ?HELP menu option on the "Federal W-4 Tax Information" web page provides detailed information about making and submitting changes.

An employee cannot update his or her Federal W-4 information using the web if the employee is not a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. In such cases, the employee must fax or mail the IRS hardcopy Federal W-4 Form to the Payroll office. Pre-printed hardcopy forms are available at the University Payroll Office.

After completing the hardcopy Federal W-4 Form, you must fax or mail it to the University Payroll Office.
