Form Glitch

There was an evil glitch on Monday regarding pension payments. Here is another snafu that affected others:

Re:  1095 Form Distribution Issue

UCOP informed UCLA yesterday that some UCLA employees may have not yet received their 1095 forms. The 1095 form is a requirement of the Affordable Care Act and indicates whether the University of California provide health insurance to an employee and their dependents if applicable. While the form is not required for filing income tax returns, it may be requested by some tax preparers. 

The message from UCOP explaining the issue and the resolution is provided below. 

We have just been informed that certain employees at your location have not received the 1095 forms issued by UC. Affected employees are those who selected electronic delivery of the 1095 form prior to your location’s migration to UCPath.

UnifyHR, the vendor who distributes 1095 forms on behalf of UC, will postal mail forms to the affected employees immediately. 

This issue will not recur in the future, as programming is under way to provide electronic delivery of 1095 forms through UCPath starting in January 2020.

We apologize for this error and the consternation it has caused.

Thank you.
