  3. Consent for electronic delivery of Form 1095-C

    Submitted by Robin Frazier,

    Form 1095-C is a required tax form that provides important information about the health care coverage an employee had or was offered by Ohio State during 2018. For employees who consent to receive the form electronically, it will be available from Equifax with secure access through Employee Self Service on February 18, 2019. Equifax will send an email when the 1095-C is available. 
    If you haven't done so, you can log into Employee Self Service by February 11, 2019, to provide consent. Receiving the form electronically saves time and is more secure. If consent is not provided, the form will be delivered to your home address on file in the HR System by March 4, 2019. Emails will be sent in early January to those employees who have not yet consented, requesting that they sign up for electronic delivery. 
    If you wish to provide consent and haven’t already done so, please go to Employee Self Service. You can view step-by-step directions at
