Employees have the option to receive their W-2 form electronically, rather than receiving a paper statement. Employees who wish to receive their W-2 electronically will need to make a positive election following the instructions in the At Your Service (AYSO) application online. Once logged in, select "W-2 and 1095-C" under the "Income & Taxes" section and then "Select W-2 Delivery Option". This election must be made by December 31, 2016. Employees who wish to receive their W-2 on paper, as in prior years, will not need to take any actions.

Please Note:

  1. Because we have to verify your account with your bank, expect to receive one last paper check before your first direct deposit.
  2. Do not write checks against your account until you see the deposit has been received in your account.
  3. If you change banks or accounts within your bank you will need to change your direct deposit information online, and you may receive a paper check in between due to the prenote process.
  4. Please verify your transit routing number and account number with your Financial Institution.
  5. If you close your account, please change your check disposition to “paper check” online. If you do not do this in a timely manner, we cannot refund you your funds until the bank returns it to UCSB.
