How Do I: Access My W-2 Statement?

This article has been updated to reflect the user interface changes to the Hub that started on September 2nd, 2020.

W-2 statements are available through the Hub, beginning with the 2014 calendar year.  Electronic delivery of your W-2 is an opt-out option, meaning that if you want yours delivered through the mail you must manually make that change.  See the section below titled "W-2 Electronic Consent" to find out how to do that!

Before Getting Started: Turn Off Your Pop-up Blocker

When you click on the link to access your W-2 your browser thinks it's a pop-up.  If you don't disable pop-ups before trying to access your W-2 you're probably not going to have a very good time.  

Although CAIT's official browser is Firefox, here are the steps to disable your pop-up blocker for all three major browsers:


  1. On a Mac click on Firefox in the menubar, in Windows click on the Menu icon in the upper right hand corner.
  2. Then click on Preferences
  3. Go to Content
  4. Uncheck Block pop-up windows


  1. Click on Safari in the menubar
  2. Go to Preferences
  3. Then click on Security
  4. Uncheck Block pop-up windows


The quickest way to allow pop-ups in Chrome is after one has been disallowed.

  1. Click on the icon in the address bar with the Red X
  2. Click on the Always allow pop-ups from radio button
  3. Click Done
  4. Try to open your W-2 again and it should appear properly

Chrome (the long way)

To allow pop-ups in Chrome you have to go through a bit deeper in Preferences than in Firefox or Safari.

  1. On a Mac click on Chrome in the menubar, in Windows click on the Menu icon in the upper right hand corner.
  2. Then click on Preferences
  3. At the bottom of the screen click on Show advanced settings...
  4. Then find the Privacy section and click on Content Settings
  5. Scroll down in the next window to the Pop-ups section
  6. Click the radio button for Allow all sites to show pop-ups
  7. Then click Done and close Preferences
Chrome (the long way)
