Employee Self Service (ESS)

Employee Self Service (ESS) allows employees to review their personnel information on-line.

ESS is a web-based service, which allows employees to log into a web portal to view their own data in the Human Resources/Payroll System of SAP. The level of security is similar to accessing commercial sites such as your bank and requires secured password access.

ESS allows employees to view:

  • Payroll statement (current & past)
  • Benefit plans, coverage, dependents and contributions
  • Leave balances
  • Banking information
  • TSA and other saving plan contributions
  • Addresses and other personal data

To provide guidance for using this new service, follow these steps:

Step 1:  Every employee will need to have a username and password. Your username is your email address. Your default password will be assigned by IT.

Step 2:  Before attempting to log into the ESS web portal, you are required to change your password. This is necessary to maintain the privacy of your information. This can be done by visiting the Active Directory Self-Service webpage at Please use these important instructions, which will guide you through the process.
