Monthly Payments

After your initial payment, your payments will be available on the first of every month. The January payment will be in your account on the first business day following January 1. SERS sends a quarterly Focus publication, which will include a quarterly statement detailing your current gross monthly allowance and deductions, and these amounts for the year-to-date. You also will receive a statement if there are any changes to your monthly payment amount.

You also can view your monthly payment information using Account Login. The Payments section of the secure site provides a breakdown of your payments and payment details for your next monthly payment. The Payments section also allows you to change your tax withholding and direct deposit information.

Keeping Your Information Current

When you write to SERS, please make sure to give your full name and the last four digits of your Social Security number.

Also, make sure you advise SERS of any change in address. Even if SERS deposits your check directly into your bank account, we still need your current home address. You can easily update your address using the My Profile section of Account Login.

You also must notify us when circumstances change, such as the death of a spouse if the spouse was covered by our health plan, or if you chose a Joint Life plan of payment.
