Updating Your Personal Information

It is important that you keep your personal information updated in the HR/Payroll system at SMU, which is reflected under Employee Self Service in my.SMU.edu using the Personal Information tile.

  • Your home address is reflected on your pay statement, which you may need to use to demonstrate your current employment at SMU.
  • Your mailing address is used for the distribution of your Form W-2 in January, for your tax filing purposes.
  • Your W-4 elections determine the calculation of federal income tax withholding from your paychecks.
  • Your direct deposit account information directs where the net pay from your paycheck is deposited each pay day.
  • Your social security number is used to report your wages and taxes as required by various federal and state agencies.
