The W-2 Annual Wage and Tax Statements will be mailed by February 1, 2016 to your active permanent address record. Consent must be given by January 10th to receive your W-2 statement electronically instead of the traditional paper process.  Online delivery provides access to the W-2 statement earlier and eliminates the chance that the W-2 will get lost or misdirected during delivery.  To sign up to receive your W-2 statement electronically follow the instructions for Electronic W-2 Election.
