Your W-2 and 1099-R Tax Forms

After you leave MIT, you can find your final Annual Wage and Tax Statement W-2 Form on the ADP website and app, using the same login to find your paystub (in Step #1 above). This form is available during the last week in January following your last year at MIT.

If you are a retiree and receive a distribution from the MIT Pension Plan (also known as the Basic Retirement Plan) you can expect to receive a 1099-R Form in your USPS mail in late January for the previous calendar year. Contact VPF HR/Payroll if you need a replacement 1099-R. The 1099-R Form is not available online.

If you receive distributions from the MIT 401 (k) plan, you will receive a 1099-R Form directly from Fidelity Investments.
