Retiree Self Service Features
View and update your contact information including your mailing address, phone numbers and email address.
It is important that you keep your contact information current. Please make sure we have your email address so you receive newsletters and announcements.
You can update your address online rather than submitting a Form to our office. If you plan to vacation for a few months, login and route your KRS mail to an alternate address.
Your account summary provides a snapshot of your retirement benefit information, such as your retirement option, monthly benefit amount, and beneficiary information. This is an easy way to review your KRS account details online.
You can view and update your direct deposit information online. Please be aware changing the account to which your benefit is deposited is payroll dependent and should be verified by speaking with a retirement systems counselor. Changes made to your direct deposit may result in a physical check being mailed until the new deposit begins. You will receive a check stub whenever the amount of your direct deposit changes.
Do you need to provide proof of your retirement income? You can submit your request online and KRS will mail or email an income verification letter. You may also request income verification be sent to a third party.
1099-Rs will be available online as soon as they have been processed and mailed. You can also get an estimate of your tax withholding before submitting any changes to your tax withholding information online.
