Consent begins Nov. 28 to receive Form 1095 electronically

Topics:

Faculty and staff can consent starting Nov. 28 to receive their Form 1095 tax document electronically.

Some tax preparers require a Form 1095 for federal returns, and it is beneficial to retain for personal records. U-M is required to provide copies of the Form 1095 in electronic or hard copy format as part of the federal Affordable Care Act.

The university’s goal is to safeguard the confidentiality and security of private information. Electronic delivery ensures access in a safe, convenient manner.

Form 1095 verifies that the university offered 2022 health care benefits to an eligible employee. U-M is required to verify these offers, even if eligible employees did not enroll in health care benefits.

key dates
  • Nov. 28-Jan. 4 – Time period to give consent for electronic distribution
  • Dec. 30 – Deadline to enter address changes for hard copy mailing. Hard copies will be postmarked by Jan. 31.
  • Week of Jan. 23 – Self Service portal for employees who have consented to electronic delivery opens. Employees who have consented will receive an email with instructions.

If consent was given previously, that consent remains in effect for future years so no further action is needed. Employees will receive emails about the dates and process for downloading Form 1095 in January.

If consent has not been previously given, go to Wolverine Access > Benefits Self Service > Form 1095 Consent.

Hard copies will be mailed to those who do not consent to electronic delivery. However, incorrect addresses or mailing difficulties can put private information at risk.

To update a home address, go to Wolverine Access > Employee Self Service > Campus Personal Information > Addresses.
