Everyone knows why they need a W-2 for filing their taxes. But why do we need the 1095-C?
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires UNM to provide the Form 1095-C to all full-time employees, as defined by the ACA, whether or not they were eligible for medical coverage, as well as all employees who were enrolled in UNM’s medical plans. The Form 1095-C is not required for you to file your taxes, but is for record purposes and lists the months you were a full-time employee, if you were eligible for UNM medical coverage, and what months you were enrolled.
You now have the option to receive an electronic copy of your 1095-C as well as an electronic copy of your Form W-2.
If you opt in for electronic delivery, you will be able to access your 1095-C on Jan. 31.
Eligible employees who do not opt in will receive the 2020 paper form by the end of February.
