Make sure your primary address is correct in Workday

All WSU staff, faculty, and student employees are asked to verify and update their home (primary) address in Workday by Thursday, November 3 to avoid issues with payroll and state income tax deductions.  

Additionally, employees who updated their personal information prior to Monday, October 31, are encouraged to verify and resubmit any changes in Workday.  

If your home address has not changed recently and is currently correct in Workday, no further action is required.

Steps for updating your primary address can be found in this reference guide.

Moving forward, any updates or changes to employee information must be made in Workday to ensure accurate records. Having a correct primary address in Workday is critical to:

  • Proper collection of State income tax each payday
  • Correct mailing of payroll checks and checks for travel reimbursements
  • Correct mailing address for end-of-year W2s
  • Appropriate Benefits determinations during Open Enrollment (OE) and for all other benefits determinations, as well as providing insurance vendors with correct addresses

Note: During OE, Workday reviews addresses and determines if the plan you are in is associated with your current address.  If not, you may be dropped from your plan and offered different elections. As you review your benefits, if you do not see the medical plan you thought you were enrolled in, please contact HRS Benefits to review further, 509-335-4521 or

Following a number of submissions to the Workday Service Desk highlighting incorrect addresses being shared between Workday and myWSU, the decision was made to stop the sync between the two systems.

Student employees should also check their address in both myWSU and Workday at this time.

Questions or concerns may be submitted to the Workday Service Desk.
