Follow these steps to ensure you receive your 2019 tax documents in a timely manner

Year-end is just around the corner. Follow these three steps to ensure your Social Security Number, addresses and paychecks are correct. This will help ensure you receive an error–free W-2, allowing you to file taxes without delay.

1: Validate and update your addresses

You should have a mailing and home address on file. Important documents, such as W-2s, are sent to the mailing address in the portal so it must be correct. Follow these steps to validate and update them:

  1. Log into the portal, select My Info and Pay from the drop-down menu, and choose the My Info tile.
  2. Review your mailing and home addresses.
  3. If they are not correct, you can update them by clicking on the Home Address and Mailing Address boxes.
  4. A fillable screen will populate, allowing you to update your information and save it.

2: Verify your Social Security Number

The next step is to confirm your Social Security Number is correct. Incorrect numbers will affect W-2s, potentially causing issues with the IRS. Check your number by:

  1. Selecting Additional Information under the My Info tile.
  2. Additional authentication will be requested. Once authorized, you will be able to access the Additional Information window to view the Social Security Number on file.
  3. If your number is incorrect, contact your Human Resources department immediately.

3: Check your pay advice every payday

Checking your pay advice after receiving your pay ensures your earnings are correct. This lessens the likelihood of having to make corrections to your W-2, which can cause delays when filing taxes. Access your Pay Advice by:

  1. Logging into the portal.
  2. Under the My Info and Pay drop-down menu, select the Paychecks tile.

4: Sign up for Digital Delivery

When you sign up for digital delivery, your Form 1095-C and/or the following notices will be delivered via email and stored in your campus portal, rather than sent to you by mail:

  • University of Colorado Health and Welfare Plan’s Notice of Privacy Practices
  • Summary Annual Report for the University of Colorado Health and Welfare Plan and Trust

To get started:

  1. Log into the portal.
  2. Select My info and Pay from drop-down menu at the top, center of the page.
  3. Click the Digital Delivery Options tile. Additional authentication will be requested. Once authorized, you can proceed.
  4. After reading the agreement for your selection(s), click Consent radio button and Submit.
