  • Electronic 1099-R forms are available for viewing on UC Retirement At Your Service (UCRAYS). Learn more about Getting help with UCRAYS.
  • Printed 1099-R forms were mailed by Jan. 31 to the address you have on file. UC will send you a printed form unless you request an electronic version.
  • Though the deadline to request electronic delivery of your 2019 forms has passed, sign in to your UCRAYS account to request electronic delivery of next year’s tax statements. 

Please note that UC does not send actual tax statements to employees or retirees by email or text. If you have requested an electronic statement, you must log in to UCRAYS to view it. If you receive an email or text that has an attachment for viewing your tax statement, it is a phishing scam designed to gain your private information. Do not open any attachments or click on any email links. 

Protect yourself

Here are additional steps you can take to protect your private information:

  • To access your 1099-R statement, go directly to your UCRAYS account instead of clicking on a link in any email from any sender.
  • Use known contact information (such as a phone number or email listed on a UC directory) to verify any request for tax information before providing the information — even if the message looks like it’s from someone you know.
  • Do not reply to emails asking for your password or SSN.
  • Familiarize yourself with the IRS’ current list of tax scams so you recognize them.

But don’t stop there. Here are eight important cybersecurity habits to help protect your information, your family and your work, and reduce your risk of getting scammed.
