Form W-2 was issued to every person who received wage or salary payments dated in 2016 from UCSD. All 2016 W-2s are available online through At Your Service Online (AYSO).

  • Those who chose online delivery of Form W-2 through At Your Service Online (AYSO)  before 12/31/16 were notified via email in January 2017 when their 2016 W-2 was available online through AYSO. The subject line was: "IMPORTANT TAX RETURN DOCUMENT AVAILABLE (FORM W-2)" from the "UC San Diego Payroll Office <prodriguez@ucsd.edu>" announcing the availability of the 2016 W-2 through AYSO.
  • Those who did not choose online delivery through At Your Service Online (AYSO) are able to access their W-2 online through AYSO.  In addition, an identical paper copy was mailed  the permanent address in the Payroll Personnel System (PPS) as of 1/13/17.
