Electronic W-2 Election for 2018

Posted on 12/14/2018 11:54:32 AM

Employees have the option to receive their 2018 W2 electronically instead of the paper form. To receive your W2 electronically, you must enroll through ESS (Employee Self Service). To enroll, you will use the ESS portal under Employee Self Service – Payroll – Update W2 Election.

Employees are required to attest that they have read the disclosure notice and agree to electronic delivery; then they will be able to continue with enrollment. Once an employee has completed enrollment, ESS will show their status on the W2 election page.

An employee may change their enrollment choice at any time up to and including December 31, 2018. After that date, employees will no longer be able to enroll for electronic distribution. After December 31, 2018, employees who have elected electronic distribution and wish to change back to a paper form will need to submit a Withdrawal of Consent to Electronic W-2 form to the Payroll Services Office. The form can be found at Faculty and Staff Forms – Payroll – IUP.
