Updating Federal W-4 Information on the Web

In most instances, an employee may update their 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. 

An employee cannot update their 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
