UWM Portal Information

The UWM Portal, also known as the MyUWM Portal, or the Self-Service Portal, is a website that allows you to:

  • Read HR, Payroll, and Benefits News
  • Access E-Benefits
  • Report Time Worked
  • Report Absences Taken
  • Access Earnings Statements
  • Access Tax Statements
  • Update Personal Contact Information
  • View UW System Career Opportunities

The UWM Portal can be accessed at https://my.uwm.edu/ at any time.

How to access the UWM Portal:

First, activate your ePanther Account. Please read UWM Technology Resources’ knowledgebase article for instructions on how to activate your ePanther account: ePanther Account activation.

Then you may access the UWM Portal at https://my.uwm.edu/.

If the UWM Portal is blank:

This happens when someone has no social security number in our HR system, or the number does not match with what is in PAWS. Please notify the Human Resources Department by emailing hr-contact@uwm.edu, so we can help rectify the issue.

Problems accessing the UWM Portal:

If you cannot access the UWM Portal it may be due to one of the reasons below:

  • Your ePanther ID may not be created or activated yet.
  • Employees without a Social Security Number in the system will not have access to the portal. Please provide a copy of your Social Security Card to the Human Resources Department.
  • Employees will lose access to most functionality within the portal after they leave active employment status.

Electronic Delivery of Forms W-2 and 1095-C

Starting in 2018, forms W-2 and 1095-C can be delivered electronically instead of mailed to the address on file. If you signed up for electronic distribution before 1/11/19, you will receive an email notifying you of the documents being ready for access.

Please Note:

  1. You will be required to be on a UWM campus network computer to access the documents.
  2. If you work off campus or out of state, you should not elect electronic delivery of forms W-2 or 1095-C as UWM does not have a VPN structure for employees to utilize.

Form W-2 on the Portal

Form W-2 can be accessed through your UWM Portal. You will be required to verify the last four digits of your Social Security Number and your birthdate.

  1. First, log into the UWM Portal: https://my.uwm.edu/
  2. Then launch the Payroll Information app.

Terminating UWM Employment

If you are no longer working at UWM, you will lose access to your UWM portal almost immediately. This may prevent you from accessing things such as your earning statement and various tax documents.

Please Note:

If you terminate employment at UWM, you will need to contact the Human Resources Department to arrange for a W-2 to be mailed to you as you will no longer have access to the UWM Portal and your electronic W-2.
