• update home phone/addresses, e-mail addresses and emergency contact information.
• view current and past pay advices.
• view compensation history.
• update direct deposit amounts and account information.
• change federal tax withholding.

E-Modules are written for Internet Explorer version 5.0 or higher. Employees who do not have the required version will need to get an upgrade from local computer support. Netscape users may not be able to access certain functions.

Your directory listing may display your network ID under the ID column. If an ID is not displayed, call ITD at 404-727-7777. In addition to telling you your network ID, they can also reset your password to one you will remember. With your ID and password, you are ready to go to E-Modules.
