At the time of filing you will need information including your Social Security Number. The names of all employers as they appear on your pay stub with the dates worked for all employers since April 1, 2017. The name and local number of your union hall, if you obtain work through a union. Your State Driver's License or Identification Card number, if you have one. Your Alien Registration Number, if you are not a US citizen but are legally authorized to work in the US. If you have any non-Utah employers, you must have an accurate mailing address and phone number for them and more.
