Employees have the option to receive their 1095-C form (Employer Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage) electronically instead of a print copy.

Although the 1095-C form is not necessary to file taxes, it is important to keep a copy along with tax records in the event of an audit. The 1095-C form provides documentation of having had health insurance coverage and was not required to purchase health insurance through the Marketplace.

Electing to receive the 1095-C form electronically allows you to print a copy at any time and will allow you to access forms from prior years as well.

Employees who wish to receive their 1095-C forms electronically will need to follow the steps below and consent to receiving their 1095-C forms electronically. If you received your 1095-C electronically in the past, then no action is required.

To opt into receive the form electronically follow the steps below:

  • Log into MyCanisius
  • Choose “My Applications” tab
  • Click on Self Service Banner (SSB)
  • Click on “Employee”
  • Click on “Tax Forms”
  • Click the box “Electronic W-2 and 1095-C Consent”
  • Check the appropriate box and then submit

Information will be sent out in The Dome when forms are ready to be printed, which will be on or before Thursday, January 31.
