University of Michigan employees who consented to receive an electronic PDF copy of their 2018 Form W-2 do not have to take further action. That consent is effective for 2019 and all future years.
Those who have not previously consented to receive an electronic PDF copy of their Form W-2 can do so now.
Those who wish to consent to an electronic version of their W-2 for 2019 and future years should go to Wolverine Access > Faculty & Staff tab > Employee Self-Service > Payroll and Compensation tile > Pay. They will be prompted to provide consent before you select a paycheck.
Employees’ 2019 Form W-2 will be available for viewing and printing from Wolverine Access on Jan. 6, 2020.
By choosing an electronic PDF copy of their W-2, employees will avoid having sensitive W-2 information, such as Social Security numbers, delivered via U.S. mail.
For those choose to receive their W-2 Form in the mail, hard copies will be mailed by Jan. 31.
The university will also provide Form 1095, which reports information about health care coverage, either electronically in Wolverine Access starting the week of Jan. 20 or by mail by Jan. 31.
Employees must consent to receive Form 1095 electronically by Jan. 3, either at the same time they consent to receive an electronic PDF copy of their W-2, or in Wolverine Access > Faculty & Staff tab > Employee Self-Service > Benefits tile > ACA 1095 Consent.
Employees should retain this tax form with other tax documents needed to file federal taxes. More information is available at hr.umich.edu/form-1095.
To ensure prompt delivery of tax forms by the U.S. Postal Service, a current home address must be correct in U-M records. To update a home address via the web, go to Wolverine Access > Employee Self-Service > Campus Personal Information tile > Addresses.
