TAKE THE PLUNGE
 
You can log in to your myPay account and sign up to begin receiving your 1099R electronically. If you do, we will email a notification to you when your tax documents are available online.
 
If you are receiving your 1099R electronically, there’s no risk of anything getting lost and you receive your 1099R almost immediately after we post it to myPay instead of waiting weeks for a hard copy to be printed, mailed and arrive.
 
If you don’t have an email address registered, but would like to switch to receiving your 1099R online, we’ve put together a step-by-step guide to help you make the change.
