REMINDER TO SIGN UP FOR W-2 ONLINE
Please remember to sign up for the option to print your own W-2 online. Employees of EIU have the option of receiving their W-2 forms online. By completing an online consent, employees will have online access to their W-2s 24 hours a day and will no longer have to be dependent on the mail.

An electronic consent to receive your W-2 online must be done through PAWS (Panther Access to Web Services) . Once in PAWS, click the "Employee" tab at the top of the page, click on "Tax Forms," and finally click on "Electronic W-2 Consent" in the Tax Forms menu. Read the explanation of electronic consent and then check the box under "My Choice." Electronic consents will remain in effect unless revoked (green check mark in box). Employees who provided consent last year for electronic W-2s are already set up and nothing additional is needed.

Remember, the quickest and easiest way to receive your 2012 W-2 is to access it online. Employees who do not have a sign-on for PAWS can contact the Information Technology Help Desk at 581-HELP to get set up. Contact the Payroll office at 581-5510 for questions concerning electronic W-2s.
