Things to Consider Take Action
Updating your personal information

Making changes to your federal income tax withholding and direct deposit instructions
  • Go to People First if you have any changes in your banking arrangements and make the necessary changes online.
  • Go to the Department of Financial Services web site for details on changing your withholding exemptions.
Updating your health and life insurance coverage
  • You may add coverage for your new spouse and/or new, eligible dependent children and make changes to your benefit elections within 60 days  of your marriage by visiting People First.

    See the QSC Matrix for documentation requirements.
