March has arrived and Wellness is focusing on supporting our neighbors!  UT System Administration is responsible for two Meals on Wheels and More routes on Fridays.  Can you help us?  It is easy to share one hour (yes, as little as one hour per month) of your time with our neighbors in need. Email Trish Meloncon to learn how you can get involved, and check out the details on the Wellness website!

Smartphones and other mobile devices play an important part in many people’s everyday lives.  A mobile device often serves as a control center for our daily lives, allowing us to stay organized communicate with family, friends, and colleagues, among others. Your mobile device probably contains information you consider vital and personal. 

Wellness is always up to something new and this month is introducing System Service – our initiative to offer employees consistent ways to give back to our community.  System Service includes How Do You Serve? where we highlight UT System Administration employees who are passionate about giving back and how you can join them…and share your story too!

Your W-2 is ready!

UT System Administration Employees;

Form 1095-C will be distributed to current and former employees, retirees and other covered individuals by March 31, 2016. You will receive additional communication prior to distribution.  You are not required to wait for Form 1095-C before filing your income tax return.

It’s Tax Season and Fraud is Rampant!

The UT System Office of Information Security wants you to be aware that several System Administration staff members received a fraudulent "phishing" email on January 20, 2016 designed to aid criminals in stealing people's identity.  The email came with a web form attachment  that very convincingly represents an IRS communication. It is important to note that the IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text messages, or social media channels to request personal or financial information.

UT System Administration Wellness is here to support you!  The new Wellness website has been created so you can access information on demand. Information for you to be your best self, in one convenient and accessible place, when YOU want it.
