Tax Time – 1095-C Forms

As you collect your paperwork to prepare your 2020 tax return, you may be thinking about your 1095-C form for health insurance information.  If you had health insurance coverage through PWCS for at least one month in 2020, you will be receiving a 1095-C from our office. These forms are not required to file your tax return, but are important to keep with your tax paperwork. The 1095-C forms were sent out to the mailing address on file with PWCS via US mail, postmarked by March 2. After March 2, you may request a copy of your 1095-C in writing via email to Benefits@pwcs.edu or via US mail to PWCS Office of Benefits, P.O. Box 389, Manassas, VA 20108. Please allow 30 days for delivery of the additional copy. If you have questions about your form, you may email Benefits@pwcs.edu or call 703-791-8568.

Vaccine Information

PWCS is working with the Prince William Health District, INOVA, and Novant UVA Health System to offer vaccines to employees as quickly as possible. As new appointments for vaccinations become available, they will be offered to employees based on their  position. PWCS continues to work with the Prince William Health District, INOVA, Novant UVA Health System, and Prince William County to expand offering the vaccine to all other employees as soon as possible. Further updates will be provided when available. 

Know that this is a very fluid process and that you will be contacted via your PWCS email address as soon as specific scheduling information is available. It is not PWCS practice to relay information to employees using personal email addresses. Please continue to check your PWCS email and monitor communications from our division.

For additional information, please visit thePWCS Vaccine webpage. You can email your questions to pwcs-vaccinations@pwcs.edu
