2013 Online W-2 Wage and Tax Statements Available

Online W-2s were made available January 10th for active employees previously electing to not have a paper W-2 mailed to them. An email was sent to notify these employees. Paper W-2s for all other employees are anticipated to be mailed approximately January 17.

If you did not previously elect to receive your W2 online but would like to make that election for 2013 and future W2s, you may now do it through eBusiness UNI Employee Self Service W-2 Delivery Preference.

Paper W-2s are mailed to ex-employees, they are not viewable online

2013 Form W-2 Wage and Tax Statement:

Year End Form W-2 Wage and Tax Statements will be available online only to UNI employees who have made the one time W-2 Delivery Preference election for an online W-2 and no paper W-2.  This election can be made throughUNI Employee Self Service, W-2 Delivery Preference. For 2013 W-2s, the election must be made by midnight January 6, 2014. If you’ve previously made this election you will continue to receive online statements until you opt back in to receiving paper statements.

Employees making the election for the online but not a paper W-2 will receive an email by January 15 stating their W-2 is available for viewing and printing through UNI Employee Self Service, Employee W-2.

Employees who have not made this election will receive a paper W-2 through the mail to their home address by January 31, 2014, and will not be able to view their W-2 online.  This also applies to employees who made the election and subsequently left UNI employment.

Choosing the online W-2 with the option to print allows you to receive the W-2 at least a full week earlier than if you choose to continue to receive the paper document through the US Mail.  It is also a cost savings to the University and prevents your social security number from going through the US Mail.

More detailed instructions for electing an online and no paper W-2 are available at W-2 Electronic Delivery Instructions.
