Elect to Receive Electronic W-2 Forms

All active USF employees have the option to receive their annual federal W-2 form electronically via GEMS Self-Service. The speed and efficiency of the electronic W-2 allows those who opt for electronic delivery to securely receive their electronic W-2 earlier than they would receive the W-2 on paper. 

By electing to receive an electronic copy, there are no concerns about the W-2 being lost or stolen as it will be accessible in GEMS Self-Service anytime, day or night. If you give consent to receive your W-2 electronically, you will receive an email notification when it is ready for viewing/printing via GEMS Self-Service.  

Consent must be received by Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013.

Note: By electing to receive an electronic W-2, you will no longer receive a paper copy of your W-2. This election is valid for all future W-2 forms unless you decide to revoke your consent or if you are no longer employed with the university. As a bonus, when you elect to receive your W-2 electronically, you will also have access to electronic copies of your 2009, 2010 and 2011 W-2s.

If you instead prefer to receive a paper W-2, no action is necessary and Payroll will provide a paper W-2 by Jan. 31.
