Update My Personal Info

Located on this webpage is information to assist employees with changing their name, updating their home address, campus address, or emergency contact information.


Change My Name:

  • Stop by the Human Resources Office with your new Social Security card or a copy. This is required before we can update your name in our payroll system. To avoid Social Security mismatches, the name in our payroll system must match the name on file with Social Security Administration. One of our HR Processing/Records team members will update your name in our payroll system.
  • Complete a new W-4‌. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires that the name on the Social Security card match the W-4 and W-2 forms. If your name change is due to a marriage or divorce, then your withholding status and possibly your number of allowances, will need to be updated. Your W-4 address may also need to be updated.
  • Complete a new Direct Deposit Authorization‌ if the name on your bank account has changed.

Note: People First (State of Florida benefits plan administrator) will update overnight when your name changes in our payroll system.
