Addresses - Change Existing Record

 View Options:              Print
Procedure Updated: 

Use this procedure to make a correction to an employee's existing Addresses (0006) infotype record or to end an employee's mailing address record.


In order to process payroll, employees must have an active Permanent residence address in the Addresses (0006) infotype. Ending an address record should only be done when an employee's mailing address is no longer valid; do not end a permanent address record.

Employees working outside of the state of Washington require an Out of State Work Location address record.

Addresses entered into HRMS are sent to HCA and DRS through their regularly scheduled data files (interfaces).

Mail from HRMS, HCA, and DRS is sent to the Mailing address if one exists, and if no Mailing address exists then it is sent to the Permanent residence address.

It is appropriate for an agency to update an address for a separated employee. This will ensure the employee will receive a W2 and any other necessary mailings.

    • In most cases, the start and to dates should remain the same. Changing the start or to dates will delete the record being updated.

    Enter necessary corrections to the record.

    Enter corrections to the record selected.

    • Telephone Numbers and Communication selection fields should contain only the 10 digit area code and telephone number. Special characters and additional numeric values will be removed by HRMS prior to saving.

    • The address fields will allow the following characters:

      • Entire alphabet – upper and lower case
      • Numeric values – 0123456789
      • Special characters - * ` % & - ! , . : ; / ( ) “ ‘ # and space
    • If the employee receives a warrant by mail, ensure the address that is active on Day 3 of payroll processing is the correct address.

    • It is recommended that you use USPS Address Lookup Tool to ensure addresses are entered correctly.

    • Do not enter out of country addresses for Permanent residence or Mailing Address types; it may cause redlines or other errors. If the employee lives out of country, it is recommended that the Permanent Residence or Mailing address records reflect either:

      • The agency address is entered and the agency then mails all items to the employee's out of country address as necessary; OR
      • The employee selects an address to use within the US, such as a family member or friend who is willing to forward their mail to their out of country address.
    • Out of country addresses can be entered for an Out of State Work Location address type.

    • Employees working outside of the state of Washington require an Out of State Work Location address record.

    • Ensure you are using the correct County Codes:

      • Permanent Residence and Mailing Address require a 2-digits County Code. If an out of state address is created for Permanent Residence and Mailing Address the county code should be entered as 40-Out of State.
      • Out of State Work Location address types require a 3-Digit County Code.
    • Be aware that Pay1 permanent residence address lines have shorter character limits than HRMS. HRMS will allow up to 35 characters in Address Lines 1 and 2, while Pay1 will only allow 30. Consider limiting the HRMS address to 30 characters so the complete address can be transferred to Pay1.
