What You Need to Know: 

The online portal where UK employees log in to review or manage work-related personal information, payroll and benefits is called myUK Employee Self-Service (ESS). This system provides employees with the tools for managing everything from benefits enrollment to direct deposit bank information -- and much more! Use the links to the right to navigate the myUK ESS Guide.

  1. Start by going to the myUK site (http://myUK.uky.edu) and logging in using  myUK log inyour "link blue" username and password. You'll log on with the same, University-wide user name/password combination you use to log into UK computers and to Exchange e-mail, among other systems.
  2. Once logged in, click on the Employee Self-Service tab, as shown below.
  3. This will bring up the Employee Self Service Overview menu. From here, navigate to major feature areas (Employee Search, Benefits and Payment, Training, Working Time and Personal Information). You may also access those major feature areas from top blue navigation bar - from anywhere inside Employee Self-Service. Ready to check out Employee Self-Service for yourself? Log in now or keep browsing this site for other helpful guides.
