How to Update Mailing Address
Retired members, this is the easiest and fastest way to update your mailing address.
If you wish to submit a future or temporary change of address or prefer to mail us your address change, please download and submit a completed Change of Address form to the Retirement Service Section.
Important: In order to access your information, you must first register to the MyLAFPP member portal. Please refer to the MyLAFPP Helpdesk on how to register and other helpful self-service “How-to’s.”
Things to consider:
Foreign Change of Address
If you have a foreign change of address, you must submit a completed Change of Address Form to the Retirement Services Section, and one of the following for approval:
1. If you are a U.S. citizen, you are required to submit a completed Form W-9 Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification, available on the IRS website.
2. If you are a Non-U.S. citizen, you are required to submit a Form W-8BEN Certificate of Foreign Status, available on the IRS website.
State Tax Withholding
If you move to another state, you cannot withhold non-California state taxes as LAFPP does not accept tax forms for non-California states and LAFPP staff cannot input non-California tax withholding elections.
California residents may elect to withhold California state taxes also by completing and mailing an Income Tax Withholding Form to LAFPP. See HOW TO: Change Your Monthly Income Tax Withholding for Your Pension Payments for more information.
