A year end post…in Q2? Yes, you read that right. We are here to talk year end in May!
When you begin to process year end payroll, you will hear a lot of talk about AccuWage Software. But do you know what AccuWage Software does? Or how will it help you during year end payroll processing? A lot of people talk about the software, but everyone is so crazy busy balancing and going through Open Enrollment and buying Christmas presents that no one ever really takes the time to explain anything about it.
So, in the quiet stillness of early second quarter, Optimum Solutions is here to spend a minute on AccuWage.
AccuWage is the Social Security Administration’s special software that allows you to send a test file of your EFW2 data to make sure there are no surprises when you submit your actual W2 file.
You can find everything you need to know about AccuWage on the SSA’s website. You can download the software there for the most recent filing year for both W2s and W2c’s - but that is just the tip of the information iceberg. On the website you will find:
- Instructions on how to uninstall the software
- View/print a Help Guide and an Installation Guide
- Access a Troubleshooting page
- Find out answers to all of the FAQs
- Find out if your system is configured properly for installation
Additionally, there is an email link you can click that will automatically open an email addressed to AccuWage Help so that you can shoot them any questions you need to ask. There is also a link to a list of Regional Employer Service Liaison Officers so you can contact someone local if that is better for your specific needs.
It’s never too early to start preparing for year end, so tuck this away in your file for next October so you can be ahead of the game and have AccuWage all taken care of before the craziness begins!
