Term Definition
W-2 Form The form a company gives an individual at year’s end, which reflects the individual’s total earnings reported to the government, along with the total of all items withheld for various purposes, including federal, state, local and FICA taxes.
W-4 Form The form typically completed at time of initial employment, which is used to authorize federal income tax withholding amounts. Any change in status (e.g., marriage, divorce) may justify revising the W-4 form.
Withdrawn Contributions Withdrawn contributions are member contributions (plus earned interest) that the retirement plan pays to employees after their termination from membership. Since March of 1993, members transferring to a temporary position or a permanent position less then full time have not been allowed to withdraw their contributions until they terminate employment.
