If you want your W-2 as early as possible, you need to e-consent prior to Dec. 31, 2012. If you do this, you will have access to print your own W-2 in your private secure environment as soon as the data is finalized – usually early in January. No waiting for the mail, no worries about the correct address and no worries about the paper W-2 being stolen.
If you provide E-Consent prior to Dec. 31, you will receive an email that the information is ready and accessible as soon as the data becomes available. If you do not provide consent or if you consent after Dec. 31, your access will not be available until the paper forms are mailed, which is usually about the last week in January.
Employees who have terminated through the year will also need to provide e-consent to gain early access to their W-2.
