Transgender Identity (taken from Human Resources FAQ section)

If I have completed a gender reassignment, what do I need to do to update my Benefits?

Please complete a Data Collection/Change Form and return it to the Office of Human Resources with a copy of your updated birth certificate reflecting the gender change. Benefits Staff will forward the documentation to update the Central Management Services (CMS) system and the State Universities Retirement System (SURS) with your name change for all state insurance and all SURS traditional, portable and self-managed retirement plans and the various vendors associated with the self-managed plan.
