As of January 10th, employees who elected to receive their W-2 via Firefly were able to access their 2016 W-2 document by logging into Firefly/Employee Self Service and clicking on the W-2 Wage & Tax Statement link.
Paper W-2 forms have been sent directly to employee’s permanent addresses listed in SAP/Firefly for distribution to those employees who either elected to receive a paper W2 or did not make an election for their W-2 method in Firefly. Please contact Payroll at 865-8426 if you have questions regarding W-2 documents.
The Health Care and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts deadline for submitting 2016 claims to WageWorks is 5:00pm on Friday, March 31, 2017. Only expenses for services received in 2016 may be reimbursed. Contributions not reimbursed will be forfeited. For questions, please call Human Resources at 8516.
We would like to remind benefits eligible employees about one of the benefits available to you and your dependent family members: the Employee Assistance Program provided by Best Care. The benefit is twofold: short-term counseling and access to the Best Care website.
