Updating Your Name

Sep 6, 2022, 08:01 AM by MOSERS
How do I update my marital status in my personal information?

The process for changing your name or marital status in our system is different, depending on if you are an active employee or if you are receiving a MOSERS benefit.

Retirees and Beneficiaries

If you are currently receiving a pension benefit of any kind, you must submit proof to MOSERS to change your name or marital status. For proof of name change, we accept an updated Missouri driver’s license showing your new name. For proof of name change and marital status change, we can accept a divorce decree or a marriage certificate.

We also require proof of name change for any inactive vested member or beneficiary applying for survivor or remaining guaranteed payments.

We accept documents of proof in the form of photo or electronic copy. You can mail, e-mail, fax, or upload documents through myMOSERS

Active Employees

If you are currently an active state employee, you do not have to provide documentation for a name change or marital status change. You can update your marital status by logging in to myMOSERS. Simply select Personal Information, then click Update Information and scroll down to change your marital status.

If you are unable to log in, contact a MOSERS benefit counselor for assistance.
