Keep your address up-to-date
Please keep your address with COAERS current. We will need an original signed Change of Address form found on the Forms link on this page in order to make sure any correspondence, newsletters, election notices, 1099-R’s, and your annual statement, as well as your annuity check (if receiving by mail) is sent to the correct address.
Sign up for Direct Deposit
COAERS recommends that retirees sign up for Direct Deposit so that retirement checks can be electronically deposited to your account in your financial institution without having to wait for the mail. Over 98% of COAERS annuitants receive their benefit payment through Direct Deposit. Application forms are available from our office or you can print them directly from the Forms link on this page. If your account is ever changed or close, please notify COAERS and update your direct deposit form.
