Web Time Entry Approver Tip

When a web time entry approver separates from the University or transfers to a different position, access to approve timesheets, as well as access for any proxies they have designated,  will end on the employee’s position term date.

To avoid delays in web time entry and approval and the possible need for paper timesheets, please submit Change Employee Time Entry Information EPAFs for each employee whom the separated/transferred employee approves — prior to the term date.

Questions? Contact epaf@mtu.edu or payroll@mtu.edu for more information.

Update Mailing Address

With the end of the academic year approaching, many student employees will be relocating. These students are reminded to update their Mailing address in Banweb to ensure receipt of paper paychecks, W-2s, 1042Ss and other University mailings. Electronic access to W-2s is currently removed when an employee’s job ends. W-2 forms will be mailed to the Mailing address on file in January, 2018.

Please note, the Mailing address is updated separately from the Alumni Mailing or Home/Permanent addresses.

Please contact Payroll Services at (906) 487-2130 or Payroll@mtu.edu if you need further assistance.


Change to Direct Deposit Allocations

Effective March 14, changes to direct deposit allocations for payroll or non-payroll deposits via employee Banweb accounts must be done on a computer or personal device that is connected to the campus network. Using the campus VPN will not work.

If you are not physically on campus, please contact Payroll Services at 906-487-2130 for payroll direct deposit changes.

This change is a short term solution to ensure your account safety. IT is working to implement multi-factor authentication. Once this is implemented, direct deposit changes from off-campus locations will be re-enabled.

Electronic W-2s Available on Banweb

Electronic 2016 W-2s are now available on Banweb for all employees who have consented to an electronic copy. Paper W-2 forms will be mailed on or before January 31st.

If you would like to receive an electronic copy of your W-2, it’s not too late. Log in to Banweb (www.banweb.mtu.edu) and click the Employees box, then Tax Forms, and then Select Electronic Consent (W2 and 1095-C).

Approvers Encouraged to Set Up Proxy

We would like to remind all approvers to make sure they have at least one proxy set up to approve payroll in the event of their scheduled or unexpected absence.  For instructions on how to do this, please visit: https://www.mtu.edu/hr/supervisors-admins/payroll/docs/web-time-approver.pdf.
Approver deadlines for bi-weekly 26 of 2016 will still be Monday, December 19th at 2pm (electronic time submission is due at noon on that day).
Approver deadlines for bi-weekly 01 of 2017 will still be Monday, January 2nd at 2pm (electronic time submission due at noon on that day).
Please plan accordingly for absences such as vacation time with regards to payroll approval deadlines and remember to inform your proxy when you need them to approve time in your absence.


2016 Form W-2 Preparation

Electronic forms

Employees are encouraged to consent to receive an electronic copy of their 2016 Form W-2 instead of a mailed paper copy.

To consent to receive your form electronically, log in to Banweb (www.banweb.mtu.edu), select the Employees tab, select Tax Forms, and then select Electronic Consent. Click the checkbox under My Choice next Consent to receive W-2 electronically, then select Submit. The deadline to consent to ensure your 2016 W-2 is not mailed is January 8, 2017.

If you consent to receive your W-2 electronically, your 2016 form will be available on Banweb on or before January 31, 2017. A reminder e-mail will be sent when it is available.

By choosing electronic delivery, employees will:

  • Avoid having sensitive information sent via mail.
  • Have earlier access to form.
  • Attain access anywhere there is internet service.
  • Help reduce the use of natural resources associated with large-scale printing and mailing, and reduce postage costs.

Paper forms

For employees who wish to receive a paper W-2, paper forms will be mailed to the W-2 address listed in Banweb.  If a W-2 address does not exist, forms will be sent to the Mailing address in Banweb. Employees should view/update their current address in Banweb no later than January 8, 2017.

To view/update current W-2 and/or Mailing addresses, log in to Banweb, select the Personal Information tab, select Update Address(es) and Phone(s).   Follow directions in Banweb to update an existing address or insert a new address type.
