Changing Your Tax Withholding
Because your tax situation can change from year to year, you may want to adjust the federal or California state withholding amounts deducted from your monthly benefit payment. There are a few ways to change your tax withholding:
- By mail or fax - Complete a Tax Withholding Election (PDF) form and mail or fax it to CalPERS.
P.O. Box 942715
Sacramento, CA 94229-2715
Fax: (800) 959-6545
- Online - Log in to myCalPERS and select Tax Withholdings from the Home tab. You can follow our step-by-step How to Change Your Tax Withholding on myCalPERS (PDF) guide if you need help.
If you need help completing the Tax Withholding Election form, call us at 888 CalPERS (or 888-225-7377) so we can assist you. However, since we cannot provide tax advice, you should contact your tax consultant, the Internal Revenue Service, and/or the Franchise Tax Board for specific information on your tax related needs.
