From UBF

As part of its service to UB, the UB Foundation (UBF) provides payroll administration for UB faculty and staff who are funded with UBF resources.

Each payday, Human Resources UB Foundation Activities sends you a message about your pay:

Your paystub for xx/xx/xxxx is now available for viewing in UBFirst.

As of July 13, 2016, all individuals compensated through entities associated with UBF will no longer log into UBFirst to view/print paystub or W-2 information.

UBF is implementing a new business system called Accufund. Users will now log into the Accufund employee portal to access paystub and W-2 information. Please use the instructions below to access the portal and establish a login.

Historical paystubs and W-2 information will still be available through UBFirst.
