Reminder: Sign up for electronic W-2 option

Duke University and Health System employees are encouraged to to take advantage of Duke’s electronic W-2 (wage and tax reporting) form.

Electronic W-2 forms provide employees with a much better way to protect confidential data elements such as social security number and other personal information printed on the annual tax documents.

Other benefits with this process are highlighted below.

  • Electronic W-2 Forms are available online 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
  • Electronic W-2 Forms are available to employees earlier in January, due to the time requirements for the printing process.
  • Enhanced security since the online form is accessed using the net ID and password in the Duke@Work Portal.
  • Supports Duke’s Sustainability initiative

To receive the electronic W-2,  sign into the Duke@Work portal (the same method used for the pay statements) using the link provided, and click on the top row to highlight the election to make any necessary changes:

No action is necessary for faculty/staff members who have already enrolled in the electronic W-2 process and have discontinued receipt of paper W-2 forms.

Please contact Corp Payroll office at 919-684-2642 or email, if you have any questions.
