Updating Personal Information


Name and/or Address Information  

To change your name or address information with PSERS, please contact your employer.  PSERS does not update the name or address information for an active contributing member.  Your employer will not only update its records but will also report the change to PSERS.  If PSERS were to update the information and your employer records are not updated, the new information could be overwritten by outdated information.   

Your Voting Status  

To change your PSERS voting status, please contact your employer.  A PSERS voting status is either “Certified”
or “Non-Certified.”  These voting designations determine in which PSERS Board of Trustees election you vote.  A “Certified” status pertains to a job position that requires certification through the Pennsylvania Department of Education or other licensing agency, such as a teacher position. Otherwise, your voting status would be “Non-Certified.”
