Changing Address

How to Update Your Address or Name

To make changes to your address or name, you must notify PSERS in writing.  Please include your name, the last four digits of your social security number, former address (or name), new address (or name), current telephone number, the effective date of the change, and your signature in the letter.  

You may also complete a Change of Address for PSERS Retirees form. (PDF) to change your address with PSERS.   The PSRS-1301 form is located on the PSERS website under Forms.  

Name and address changes should not be submitted any earlier than 90 days prior to the effective date of the change.

Our mailing address is –  

5 N 5th Street
Harrisburg PA  17101-1905

Name Change Requests

If you are changing your name, PSERS may require additional verification, such as a copy of the court order granting the name change.  This is especially true for any name change resulting from anything but a marriage.  

Unacceptable Requests

PSERS will not accept address or name changes:

  • From an email
  • By phone
  • From anyone but you

If you have named a Power-of-Attorney (POA) (PDF) and the POA was approved by PSERS, the POA may change your address on your behalf.
