Frequently Asked Questions - Name and Address Changes
Employees - Notify Human Resources/Payroll
Notifying Human Resources of a name or address change affects the Human Resources/Payroll database which houses employment and payroll information, and the State database in Richmond which houses health insurance information for full-time employees. There is a standard HR/Payroll form which you may download and print, or request from Human Resources at 993-2600. If you are changing your name, you must use this form and submit a copy of your new social security card or official name change document issued by the courts. For an address change, please make the change on-line at PatriotWeb (directions below) or by completing the Address Change Form and sending it to us at MSN 3C3.

Employees - Notify Payroll If Moving From Area
Remember to notify Payroll if you move from the area any time within the calendar year that you end employment.

If you have any questions, please contact the HR & Payroll office at (703) 993-2600.
