Retirement Contributions

For employees who may be interested in changing the contributions to their retirement plan, please complete the Salary Reduction Agreement and send it to the Human Resources Office for processing.    

For the 2020 calendar year, maximum contributions to a 403(b) plan per IRS regulations are:  $19,500 and (if over age 50) and additional $6,500 catch up contribution.  If any employee is interested in reaching these maximum figure(s) for the 2020 calendar year, please contact HR to discuss this calculation for your personal circumstances.

Employee Self-Service

The Office of Human Resources is pleased to introduce Employee Self Service (ESS).  Employee Self Service is a web-based portal that provides employees with their pay and benefit information at their fingertips.  This online tool will enable employees to view real-time information to ensure the data is accurate and up to date.  In addition, ESS will replace WebAdvisor as the time entry system of record.  In addition, as a module within the Ellucian Colleague platform, ESS integrates with other modules within Colleague to increase efficiencies and streamline processes.  

Employees can access the Employee Self Service training manual here.  Please note that several tiles in Self Service have not yet been activated.  Therefore, at this initial point, the training manual may look somewhat different than what you see on our current site. 

Reasonable Accommodations

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, an individual may qualify for a reasonable accommodation if they have “a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities”. To discuss potential accommodations, please reach out to Jennifer Mangus, Director of Human Resources, at jmangus@allegheny.edu. After the initial discussion, employees will be asked to complete the reasonable accommodation form to move forward with the request process.
