Tax season is upon us, and you can begin safely accessing your 2021 tax statements. Here’s what you need to know.

Important security reminder: UC does not send any tax documents by email or text. If you receive an email or text with a link or an attachment for viewing your tax documents, it is a phishing scam designed to gain your private information. Do not open attachments or click email links that claim to provide access to your tax documents. 

To access your electronic tax documents, always go to your UC benefits account using a safe/known link. To learn more about current tax scams, visit IRS consumer alerts.

Information for current employees

Starting on January 27, 2022, all employees can access their 2021 W-2 on UCPath online: 

  • Employees who requested an electronic version of their W-2 received an email on January 25 notifying them of the online availability.
  • Employees who did not select an electronic version may still access their W-2 on UCPath and will also be mailed a printed W-2 no later than Jan. 31, 2022.

To access the W-2 on UCPath, click on Employee Actions > Income and Taxes > View Online W-2/W-2C

Information for former employees

Former employees have access to view or download their W-2 statements (up to three years after their separation date). To access their UCPath W-2, they can visit UCPath and click on Former Employee. Once logged in, click on Employee Actions > Income and Taxes > View Online W-2.

To access historical tax and earnings statements from before your location transitioned to UCPath, go to At Your Service Online (AYSO).

Information for retirees

Your 1099-R statements are available for viewing and downloading from your UC Retirement At Your Service (UCRAYS) account. Go to “Benefit Payments & Taxes” and click “Tax Statements.”

New security features are being added in February: When you view your tax statement(s), you will be sent an email to confirm it was a valid request and you will be required to verify your identity by entering a one-time code sent to you via text or email.

Printed 1099-R forms will be mailed by Jan. 31, 2022, to the address you have on file. UC sends you a printed form unless you request an electronic version.
