Change of Account Information
Keeping PERS up to date with changes to your name, address, and, or spouse and beneficiary information allows us to provide you with the most efficient service possible, including timely delivery of your PERS newsletter, issuance of your annual Internal Revenue Service Form 1099-R each January, and other mail outs from your retirement system. For the protection of our retirees and members, PERS does not accept a change of address or change of beneficiary information over the telephone. To make a change to your account, submit a completed Form 1C, Change of Information.
Annual Internal Revenue Service Form 1099-R

You will be required to provide your Social Security number and the tax year for the 1099-R needed. Please allow one to two weeks for PERS to process your request.
