Making Direct Deposit Changes 

The quickest way to change your direct deposit is in miAccount. Ordinarily, if we receive your request by the first day of the month, your next payment should be deposited into your new account. Do not close your old account until your pension payment has been successfully deposited into your new account.

Missing Payment

Notify the Michigan Office of Retirement Services (ORS) after three days if your regular direct deposit payment is not deposited into your account.


You can change your federal or Michigan tax withholding rate at anytime in miAccount

Log in to miAccount anytime after Jan. 1 to view and print your 1099-R so you can file your income tax returns. This statement shows how much was paid to you during the year in pension benefits, as well as how much was withheld in taxes. ORS will also send you a copy of your 1099-R every January.
