When entering the event date in the “DOCUMENT EVENT DATE” field on EVID or “REPORT
TEXT” on DROC, enter the last day of the year as stated on the W-2.
Information about the amount of income may be shown in the “COMMENTS” field on EVID
or the “REPORT TEXT” field on DROC. The amount of income must be entered in the system for which the substantive information is being captured (e.g.,
MCS, MSSICS, etc.). Record the employer's EIN in the “RIN” field on EVID or the “REPORT
TEXT” field on DROC.
The date recorded and the date issued are not needed.
In an initial claims situation, when a claimant brings in two or more W-2s from different
employers as proof of wages, complete two different EVID screens. Show all W-2's on
one DROC screen. (If proof of prelag wages is presented, completion of the Earnings Modernization screens is sufficient
to capture an audit trail about the employer.)
