W2 Forms

2017 W-2 Tax Form Available

Your 2017 W-2 tax reporting form is now available online. As in past years, all employees have access to their W-2 forms online. To see your W-2, log in to MyU and click on the My Pay tab, then on View W2/W2C Forms. If you opted to receive your W-2 form exclusively online, you will not receive a printed form in the mail. If you did not opt in for an online W-2, your printed form will be mailed this week.

Rainy Day Fund

Save for Rainy Days

A rainy day fund consists of a small amount of money in a savings account separate from your checking. Start small and make contributions as often as you can.

If debt is making it hard to save for a rainy day, meet with a financial counselor. You and your family can get six free counseling sessions a year as a benefit of working at the University. Work with an expert who can help you pay down debt and start saving, just like hundreds of fellow U employees who have paid off over $1 million in debt.

Payroll Tax Changes

In mid-January, the IRS released the new 2018 income tax withholding tables reflecting the changes from the new federal tax reform law. Employees whose net pay will change due to the new tax tables will see those changes applied to the February 5–18 pay period, which will appear on your February 28 paycheck. The new tax tables are designed to adjust withholding based on your current W-4.

If you have questions about your paycheck, please email ohr@umn.edu or call 4-UOHR (612-624-8647800-756-2363).
