Change Home or Mailing Address

Introduction

This section provides procedures for changing your home or mailing address in PeopleSoft using self-service.

Key Points

The home address should be the address of your physical residence (not a P.O.Box, FP/AP, etc.). It can be the same as the mailing address.

 

The mailing address is where your W-2 form and any other correspondence will be mailed. You may enter a P. O. Box or FP/AP address as your mailing address.

 

You can select the date the address change will become effective.

Entering Overseas/OUTCONUS or Mobile Unit Addresses

The country code should be set to "USA" when entering U. S.(including American Samoa, Federated States of Micronesia, Guam, Marshall Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, Palau, Trust Territory, and Virgin Islands of the US), AA, AP & AE, addresses

Effective Date:

Your mailing address change will normally be effective the first day of the month following the month it is submitted. If your mailing address change is submitted on the first day of the month, it will be effective the same month. Examples:

Attention Government Travel Charge Cardholders:

Note that address changes submitted for personnel and pay data (Change Home or Mailing Address or Employee Address and Home of Record) are not provided to Citibank. Card holders must notify Citibank, separately, when their address changes.

 

In order to update the address, the cardholder needs to call Citibank at the toll free number listed on the back of their government travel charge card and update their mailing address with Citibank.  The toll free number is 1-800-790-7206.
