Mushroom Crab Appetizer


  • 8 oz. fresh mushrooms
  • 8 oz. lump crabmeat
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup minced onions
  • 1 tbsp. skim milk
  • 4 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese (Neuchâtel), softened
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley


  1. Brush mushrooms to remove any soil that may be clinging to them. Rinse under cool water and drain. Trim stems and chop finely.
  2. Rinse crabmeat and pick over to make sure there are no shells or cartilage.
  3. Heat oil in a large saucepan. Add mushrooms and onions. Cook until mushrooms give up moisture and onions are translucent.
  4. Add milk and cream cheese and stir until creamy.
  5. Add crabmeat. Stir gently to keep lumps.
  6. Remove from heat and stir in parsley.
  7. Spoon into mini phyllo cups—green spinach ones look especially pretty with the white crab—and serve.

UW Employees May Choose Electronic-only Distribution of W-2 and 1095-C Forms

UW employees now have the option of receiving all future W-2 and 1095-C forms each January via electronic-only distribution, thus eliminating paper form distribution via U.S. mail.

The W-2 form states an employee’s compensation and tax withholding amounts for the previous calendar year. The 1095-C form documents that an employee who worked full-time for all or some months in the previous year was offered health insurance coverage.

How Do I Choose Electronic-only Distribution of my W-2 and 1095-C Forms?
To choose electronic-only distribution of your W-2 and 1095-C forms, you are required to complete a consent form for both the W-2 form and the 1095-C form. Both consent forms must be submitted by January 11, 2019 for electronic-only distribution of these tax forms in 2019.

If you consent to W-2 and 1095-C form electronic-only distribution, you may withdraw your consent at any time. Your consent will cease if you terminate UW employment. Note: These consent options do not apply to the 1042-S form. 1042-S forms are available electronically in the Glacier Online Tax Compliance System for employees who choose electronic delivery through that system.

If you do not complete the consent forms, your W-2 and 1095-C forms will continue to be mailed to the mailing address you have listed in the MyUW portal. You may review and update your address in the MyUW portal via the portal Personal Information tile.

Why Should I Consent to Electronic-only Distribution?

  • Secure method of delivery with less risk of lost or stolen forms.
  • Electronic forms are available earlier than mailed paper forms.
  • Reduced administrative costs of generating W-2 and 1095-C forms.
  • Environmentally friendly.

Completing the Electronic-only Consent Form(s)
The option to choose electronic-only distribution is now available. Follow the instructions below. It’s quick and easy:

  • Log into the My UW Portal
  • Go to the Payroll Information tile and select “Tax Statements.”
  • On the Tax Statements page, choose “Consent to receive W-2 electronically” and/or “Consent to receive 1095-C electronically.” Reminder: you must complete the two separate consent forms to choose electronic-only distribution for both the W-2 form and the 1095-C form.
  • Read the provided instructions.
  • Check the “I consent…” checkbox.
  • Choose the “Submit” button.
  • You will receive an email confirming your consent within 24 hours. You will also receive an email by January 31, 2019 alerting you to the electronic availability of your W-2 and/or 1095-C forms.

Withdrawing Consent: The same instructions noted above apply to withdrawing consent, except that an alternative checkbox must be chosen to submit consent withdrawal. An email is sent within 24 hours of submitting withdrawal.

If you have any questions regarding choosing electronic-only distribution of your W-2 and 1095-C forms, contact Human Resources at (920) 465-2390 or
