Printed 2014 W-2 Forms Mailed 1/28/15: Duplicate W-2 Request

Printed 2014 W-2 forms were released to the US Postal Service to be mailed on Wed., Jan. 28, 2015.  Any employee who has previously retrieved a W-2 online was not mailed a W-2 and is expected to get the W-2 for 2014 via the State of Kansas Employee Self Service.  Current employees have access to their W-2 anytime through the State of Kansas Employee Self Service. Retired and terminated employees have access for 18 months after their departure from KU.

Duplicate paper W-2’s will be available starting Wednesday, Feb. 11, 2015. You may still get your W-2 anytime online. Employees wishing to receive a printed duplicate W-2 can submit a W-2 Reissue Request via Kansas Employee Self Service.

For employee’s who cannot access Kansas Employee Self Service a request can be made via email to the KU Payroll Office. Please include the year you would like a W-2 for, your full name, your mailing address, and the last 4 numbers of your social security number and a request will be made to the State of Kansas for a duplicate to be mailed. You may send your request via fax: 785/864-0369; campus mail: Payroll Office Carruth O’Leary Hall room 145, or regular mail: Payroll Office, 1246 W. Campus Road, Carruth O’leary Hall room 145, Lawrence, KS 66045-7505. This process can take 2 to 3 weeks.

The fastest way to receive your W-2 is by using the State of Kansas Employee Self Service.
