Consent to Receive Your W-2 Electronically

Safeguard your sensitive information from possible loss or theft in U.S. mail. Opt out of receiving a paper W-2 and consent to exclusively receive your W-2 electronically by following these instructions:

  1. Log in to Workday with your NetID and password.
  2. Select the ‘Menu’ button on the top left side of your screen, then select ‘Pay’ from the dropdown.
  3. In the Pay dashboard, under ‘View,’ select ‘My Tax Documents.’ Choose ‘Printing Elections’ from the pop-up window.
  4. Select ‘Edit’ on the right and select the radio button to receive an electronic copy of tax documents.
  5. Click ‘OK’ in the lower left corner and click ‘Done.’

For more detailed instructions, view the Receiving an Electronic Copy of Your W-2 tip sheet.

Once you have selected to receive your W-2 only electronically, Yale will not mail a paper copy to you. You will receive an email notification in mid to late January when your W-2 is ready for print.
