Online W-2 Forms Available for UK Employees

University of Kentucky employees have the option to access their W-2 statements online through Employee Self Service (ESS) of myUK.

The benefits of receiving an online W-2 are:

  • Earlier access to your W-2 than traditional mail with an expected access date of January 24, 2022;
  • Eliminates the possibility of your W-2 statement being lost in the mail or delayed;
  • Access and ability to print your W-2 statement at any time; and
  • Once enrolled future W-2s will remain online for multiple years.

UK employees may choose to receive their W-2 online by logging into myUK using their link blue username and password by midnight January 19, 2022.

Employees who do not enroll in the program will have a paper W-2 form printed and mailed by the University of Kentucky no later than January 31, 2022, to the employee’s permanent address on file in the SAP HR/Payroll system. Employees who have separated employment from the University of Kentucky will have a W-2 paper form printed and mailed.

Instructions can be found on the UK Human Resources W-2 Online Delivery webpage.

Whether employees receive their W-2 online or by mail, everyone should verify their mailing address is correct in SAP by viewing Personal Information in ESS.Employees may update their permanent residence by following the steps listed here. Employees should update this information by midnight January 19, 2022.
