UCPath Phone Service Introduces Virtual Agents
UCPath Phone Service Introduces Virtual Agents

UCPath recently introduced a virtual agent system to its phone service. The virtual agents will be able to answer some common questions and, over time, be updated to handle a broader range of questions. Employees calling UCPath will experience the following:

  • Callers will authenticate their identity and then be greeted by a virtual agent.
  • The virtual agent will be able to answer some common questions regarding W2s, paychecks, vacation and sick accruals, direct deposit, employment verification, and Public Service Loan Forgiveness forms.
  • If the virtual agent is unable to answer a caller’s question, the caller will be transferred to a customer service agent and will be informed of the average wait time to speak to someone.
Pay Training Improvements

UCI UCPath Team Exceeds Goals for Pay Training Improvements Project


The UCI UCPath team recently implemented processes that reduced the number of tickets and calls for missed or incorrect pay by 35% over a four-month period ending in June 2022, exceeding their target of 30%. The team continually seeks ways to improve processes and systems, and this initiative was a part of DFA’s Lean Six Sigma (LSS) Yellow Belt program to apply LSS tools and principles to real projects.

Led by Debbie Kistler, Angel Rivera, and Sheila Mercer, the team utilized the number of drop-in center calls and EEC tickets for transactor support from July-October 2021 as a baseline. They found 150 payroll issues and used this information to identify problems, set goals, conduct root cause analysis, and create solutions for enhanced training and support that were implemented from March to June 2022 with great success. These new processes will continue in support of UCI transactors and employees.

AYSO Scaled Down

At Your Service Online (AYSO) – Scaled Down


What Does AYSO Still Offer?

Since all UC locations have transitioned to UCPath, AYSO made some changes that became effective December 4, 2020. In the past, AYSO hosted applications for employees, former employees, and retirees/benefit payees. These applications have now all transitioned to either UCPath or UCRAYS. What remains on AYSO are:

  • Historical Earning Statements
  • Tax Statements for employments prior to transitioning to UCPath. These must remain accessible for certain periods according to tax laws and UC contracts. 

To access historical earning statements and tax statements prior to 2020, visit AYSO at:
