Making Direct Deposit Changes 

To change your direct deposit, complete and submit the Direct Deposit Application (R0277X) form. Ordinarily, if we receive your request by the first day of the month, your next payment should be deposited to your new account. Do not close your old account until your pension payment has been successfully deposited in 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 to your account.


You can change your federal or Michigan tax withholding rate by completing and submitting the Income Tax Withholding Authorization (R0012X) form.

ORS will send you a copy of your 1099-R every January. This statement shows how much was paid to you during the year in pension benefits, as well as how much was withheld in taxes.
