Life Events

Marriage

Getting married may mean you’ll need to do the following:

Change your name

If you’re still an employee of the state police, you should change your name with your employer. Once your employer’s records are current, the Office of Retirement Services’ (ORS) and Voya Financial® records will be updated automatically.

If you’re no longer employed by state police, you’ll need to report your name change to ORS and Voya® for both the pension and savings components of your plan.

Pension Component
Send a completed Name and Address Change (R0357X) form to ORS along with legal documentation of your name change such as a photocopy of your marriage certificate.

savings component
Send a letter stating your new name and photocopy of your marriage certificate to Voya.

Change your contact information

If you’re still an employee of the state police, you should change your contact information (phone number and mailing address) with your employer. Once your employer’s records are current, ORS and Voya’s records will be updated automatically. 

If you’re no longer employed by the state police, you’ll need to change your contact information for both the pension and savings components of your plan.

Pension Component
Log into your pension account, miAccount, and click on Update Address and Phone on the left navigation. You may also send a completed Name and Address Change (R0357X) form to ORS. It’s also a good idea to keep your email address up-to-date with ORS by logging into your pension account, miAccount. Once you’re logged in, click on Update Address and Phone on the left navigation.

savings component
Send a completed Address Change form to Voya, or call Voya at (800) 748-6128. If you prefer to receive electronic communications for your retirement investment account, log into your account, and click on mail delivery preferences to add your email address.

Change your beneficiaries

Pension Component
Log into your pension account, miAccount, and click on Beneficiaries and Dependents to designate or make changes to your beneficiary information. To make a designation, you ’ll need your beneficiary’s name, date of birth, and social security number.

savings component
Log into your retirement investment account and select your plan under My Account. Click on Personal Information, then on Beneficiary Information. To designate or make changes to your beneficiaries, click on Add/Edit Beneficiary. You may also send a Beneficiary Nomination form to Voya. To make a designation, you’ll need your beneficiary’s name, date of birth, and social security number.

Save More

Now that you’re married, you should think about how your retirement income needs have changed. You can increase your contributions to your retirement investment account up to the annual IRS limit. To start saving more, log into your retirement investment account and select your plan under My Account. Click on Contributions on the left, then on Change Contributions.

You may also be able to make catch-up contributions.
