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.
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.
