Changing Your Address

It is important that the Office of Human Resources has your current address.  Keeping your address up-to-date is especially important at the end of the year when W-2s and other income tax related forms are sent to your home address.

If you've moved, or are planning a move, you may let us know in one of thee ways

  • You may report Legal address changes online by logging into the Self Service Portal https://www.suny.edu/hrportal using your Binghamton PODS username and password.  This will report the change to the office of Human Resources, Payroll and Employee Benefits systems.

(OR)

  • You may visit our office on campus to complete a Change of address form.  We are located in the Couper Administration Building, Room 244 (2nd Floor)

(OR)

  • Contact the staff member in your department who is responsible for HR Forms.
    • They will submit an electronic HR Personal Data Form for you.
    • Human Resources will receive the transaction and update the appropriate HR, Payroll and Employee Benefits systems.

Other considerations

  • Contact your local post office (find a post office).  Complete a "Change of Address" notification so your mail can be efficiently forwarded to your new address.  Visit www.usps.com.
  • Student employees should also contact the Registrar's office and provide them with their new address. Changing your address with Human Resources will have NO impact on your address on file with the Registrar's Office.
  • If you are a retirement system member, you will need to contact them to update your address.
  • If you are in a union represented position, please contact them to update your address.
  • It's important to note that a change in address either from a New York City or Yonkers address to a local address, or from a local address to New York City or Yonkers will impact local taxes. An IT-2104 tax form should be completed at the same time as the address change is requested, indicating residency in New York City or Yonkers. Questions should be directed to the Payroll office at 607-777-2193, or the Payroll Manager Cheryl Robinson-Boyett at clrobin@binghamton.edu or 607-777-2129.
