At Your Service Isn’t Going Away Yet

In future phases of the UCPath Project, the remaining AYSO features will also move to UCPath. Until then, employees can still access AYSO to:

  • Access the retirement estimator.
  • View and update beneficiary information.
  • View and print past W-2s (Note: all employees will receive two W-2s for 2019 – one from the PPS system which can be viewed in AYSO, and another from UCPath).
  • View past benefits information.
  • View or change retirement savings account information (Fidelity website).
