2014 W-2 Wage and Tax Statements

Online W-2s were made available January 9th for active employees previously electing to not have a paper W-2 mailed to them. Paper W-2s for all other employees will be mailed approximately January 15th. Ex-employees are not able to view the W-2 online and are mailed a paper W-2.

The W-2 is reflective of January 1-December 31 earnings. The delay some employees experienced in receiving payment for December 31 payroll did not affect the W-2 totals.

Following the processing of the 2014 W-2s, the e-Business UNI Employee Self Service W-2 Delivery Preference function will be available approximately January 16 for employees wanting to change their W-2 delivery preference for future years. Electing to receive your future W-2s online will also allow employees to currently view all past W-2s online.

Directions on viewing and printing the online W-2 are available.

W-2 FAQs

Additional questions about your W-2? Contact Sherri Baldwin at 273-2656 or Kim Andersen at 273-6425.

Sign up now before the January 6th deadline for electing online access to your 2014 W-2!

Please consider electing to receive the 2014 and future year W-2s online (printable) and NOT receive a paper W-2 through U.S. Mail.  The primary benefits of making this election are the following:

  • Your W-2 is securely available to you online instead of having your paper W-2 moving through multiple handling processes for printing, mail preparation, and mail delivery.
  • Your W-2 will be available for viewing, with the option to print, about a week sooner than receiving a mailed W-2.  This may be beneficial to you if you intend to prepare your tax return early.  The online W-2 is formatted exactly the same as the copy you would otherwise receive in the mail.
  • You may access your W-2 through Employee Self Service at any time after they are made available, including prior years.  Only employees who have made the election to receive the online W-2, thereby not to receive the paper W-2, will be able to view the W-2 through e-business Employee Self Service.
  • Eliminating as many paper W-2s as possible results in significant savings to the university by avoiding postage, paper and processing costs of printing, transporting and mailing.

To make this election, go to UNI Employee Self Service > W-2 Delivery Preference, log in, and select Yes for Online.  The election must be made no later than January 6th to be effective for the 2014 W-2s.  See W2 Delivery Preference Instructions for more detailed instructions.
