Employees: Your UBIT Services Are Changing

Your affiliation, based on your current appointment at Human Resources, determines what UBIT services you can use. Changes (such as retirement) affect your eligibility.

Employees Continuing to Work at UB

If you still work at UB and you receive email that says, "Notice: Your UBIT Services are Changing," your appointment may have lapsed or there may have been a delay in submitting or processing your new appointment with Human Resources.

What you need to do:

  1. Ask an administrative staff member in your department to contact the UBIT Help Center and confirm their intent to renew your appointment. They can request a temporary extension of your UBITName to allow time for an appointment to be processed by HR.
  2. After the UBIT Help Center processes the request, your UBITName can be used to access UBIT services for up to 60 days pending processing of a new appointment by HR.
  3. Once the new appointment is processed by HR, your UBITName can be used to access UBIT services for the length of your appointment.

Retirees (State Employees)

What you need to do:

Contact UB Human Resources (HR) to begin the official retirement process. When UB Human Resources changes your status to official retiree:

  • Your UBITName will retain access to many UBIT services, including UBmail. You will need to log into your UBmail account at least once every 90 days to keep your account active.
  • You can no longer download or purchase software licensed through UB.
  • You will lose access to UBbox.

Retirees (RF and UBF Employees)

What you need to do:

Contact an administrative staff member in your department. Ask them to contact the UBIT Help Center to confirm their intent to allow you to keep your UB email as a retiree.

Once the UBIT Help Center confirms your status with your department and processes the request:

  • Your UBITName will retain access to many UBIT services, including UBmail. You will need to log into your UBmail account at least once every 90 days to keep your account active.
  • You can no longer download or purchase software licensed through UB.
  • You will lose access to UBbox.

Leaving UB (Non-Retirees)

Employees leaving UB who are not retiring retain access to UBIT services until their appointment is terminated by UB Human Resources (HR).

What you need to do:

  • Update contacts that may send email to your UB email address. Once you leave, email messages sent to your UBITName will be returned as undelivered.
  • You will lose access to UBbox.
