Choose to Receive Your W-2 Electronically

October 18, 2019

Penn’s Payroll Department strongly encourages you to elect turning off printing and mailing of paper W-2 forms in Workday@Penn. Doing so will help avoid delays or errors in receiving your year-end tax documents caused by U.S. postal mailing.

Beginning with the tax year 2019, your W-2 will be available in Workday@Penn, the University’s faculty affairs, human resources, and payroll system. You will also be able to upload your tax information into most tax filing software.

To turn off printing and mailing of your W-2, log on to Workday@Penn and follow the simple steps in the Self Service-Access Tax Withholding Forms tip sheet. Change the printing election to electronic before December 31, 2019 so your paper W-2 for the current tax year will not be mailed to the home address indicated in Workday.

Forms W-2 for tax years 2018, 2017 and 2016 are available on the ADP website.  For copies of W-2 for tax years 2015 and prior, contact the Penn Employee Solution Center at (215) 898-7372 or
