At SERS, it's our job to make sure that the pension you've earned and the monthly payment option you've selected is calculated accurately and arrives on time - so you can do other things you want and need to do. If you like, you can print the 2021 payment calendar to keep. If you ever have questions, we're here to help. Please just call 1.800.633.5461.
Even though you're busy, it's important to take time to provide SERS with up-to-date information when your life changes:
Reduce the possibility of lost or stolen checks by signing up for direct deposit
Make sure the mailing address we have for you is accurate, even if you use direct deposit
Keep your beneficiary designation current, if applicable
Change your designated survivor, if the person you originally designated dies before you do, or if you get divorced or married
Update the dependents on your REHP health coverage, if necessary
Monitor and adjust your federal tax withholding, if you need to
Tell us if your pension becomes part of a divorce or child support order
Ensure that we have a fully executed power of attorney, if appropriate
It's also helpful to read your SERS newsletter and review your annual statement when it's mailed to you each January or when you sign in to SERS online member services. You can also sign up to have retired member updates sent to you by e-mail.
