There are many good reasons to go paperless, and UCPath is making it easier than ever. Now you can sign up for electronic delivery of your 1095-C, as well as your W-2, tax form in your UCPath online account. And, if you’re still getting your paycheck in the mail, this is the perfect time to sign up for direct deposit.

Go paperless today: Here’s how

On UCPath, select Employee Actions > Income and Taxes. From there, go to:

Complete the necessary security checks and follow the steps to enroll. The links above lead to detailed instructions, available after you sign into Sharepoint.

Make sure you sign up before Jan. 1, 2023, to receive your 2022 1095-C electronically and before Jan. 13, 2023, to receive your 2022 W-2 statement electronically.

Four great reasons to go paperless

Going paperless is safe and convenient — and it can even save you money. Here are four great reasons to update your preferences today:

  1. Convenient and secure: Your tax forms and paycheck can’t get lost in the mail, stolen or misplaced.
  2. Ready when you are: Your tax forms are easy to access as soon as you’re ready to file your taxes, and your money is in your account as soon as you get paid.
  3. An opportunity to save: Many banks offer incentives for using direct deposit.
  4. More sustainable: From paper to transportation, mailed statements have an environmental impact. Help preserve natural resources by keeping your records electronic.

Protect your data

To access your electronic 1095-C and W-2 statements, always go directly to UCPath using a safe, known link.

UC does not send tax statements to employees by email or text. If you receive an email or text that has a link or an attachment for viewing your tax forms, it is a phishing scam designed to gain your private information. Do not open any attachments or click on any email links that claim to give you access to your tax forms.
