Former employees who no longer have secure access to our web portal can go to www.paperlessemployee.com/columbiau and create an account. If you have questions or issues creating an account, please contact the HR Service Center at 212-851-2888.

 

If you need a copy of your W-2 and are unable to access online, please call the vendor's toll-free number at (800) 360-1265. Our vendor-supported, Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system will assist you with your request. You can also speak to a customer service representative if needed. The form can be faxed or mailed USPS. If there is a charge, this can be paid via credit card/debit card or personal checking account.

 

Still Have Questions?

If you need a corrected W-2 or if you still have questions on your W-2, you can submit a question via completion of this ServiceNow Form or call HR Service Center at 212-851-2888.
