Important Year-end Updates from Payroll:

HR/CMS Self-Service link can be found here.

  1. Address Verification: In preparation for year-end tax reporting and document delivery, any update in home address must be made by January 1, 2021 in HR/CMS Self-Service.
  1. Employees are now able to suppress both 2020 W-2 and ACA 1095-C forms through HR/CMS Self-Service:

Some of the benefits of suppression are:

  • A reduced risk of forms being lost or stolen via the regular mail.
  • Early W-2 and Affordable Care Act (ACA)1095-C forms will be available in January only to employees who suppressed through HR/CMS. Those employees will receive an email when the W-2 Form is available, and will not receive a paper W-2 or ACA1095-C through the mail.
  • Format allows to “cut and paste” the included information into most tax preparation software.

If not suppressed, the W-2 and ACA 1095-C Forms will be postmarked by March 2nd, 2021 and mailed to the employee’s home address.

Suppressing W-2 and 1095-C forms can be found here or below:

  • To View W-2/W-2C or Consent to Receive Electronic W-2, employees can log into HR/CMS and go to Main Menu> Self Service>Payroll and Compensation.
  • To View ACA 1095-C or Consent to Receive Electronic 1095-C, employees can log into HR/CMS and go to Main Menu> Self Service>Benefits.
  • The ACA 1095-C Frequently Asked Questions can be found here.

If you have any questions or for assistance with the above info, should contact the HR/Payroll at or (978) 739-5422. NSCC is not supported by the Employee Service Center (ESC), please do not contact the ESC.

Welcome to the
Equality & Equity Project

 As part of our commitment to Anti-Racism, Diversity & Inclusion, the Equality & Equity Project will provide historical and present-day information about the contributions, challenges, culture, and daily lives of the many vital groups that make up our NSCC community, and the larger world.

We invite you to visit often, reflect on what you see and read, discuss it with others and, hopefully, expand your knowledge base, appreciation, and understanding of groups beyond your own.

Think about this:

Intersectionality exposes one’s multiple identities to help clarify the ways in which a person can simultaneously experience privilege and oppression. For example, a Black woman in America does not experience gender inequalities in exactly the same way as a white woman, nor racial oppression identical to that experienced by a Black man. Each race and gender intersection produce a qualitatively distinct life. 

If you have any questions or comments on NSCC's Equality & Equity Project, please contact us at EqualityEquity@northshore. edu


--Diane Read for the Equality & Equity Project



 Faculty and staff are welcome to participate in the following and
are encouraged to share with their students!
