How to Combine Multiple W2 Electronic Submission Files

Save time by combining multiple individual W-2 electronic files (EFW2) into one bulk submission. Easily generate an e-file for each company. Using our built in utility simply combine all the individual company files into one bulk electronic submission file.

5. Select Input (Source) Folder you created in step 1

6. Click "OK"

7. Click "Select Output File Name"

Note: Output folder is the folder where you will save the new combined file to upload to the SSA system
