Personal Data - Copy and Update Record
Use this procedure to copy an existing Personal Data (0002) infotype record and update it with necessary changes, such as:
- name change
- social security number change
- marital status change
- gender change
Using the Copy action will retain the history of the previous record.
Follow your agency’s business policy for changes to these fields. Verification, such as a new social security card, may be required.
Depending on your agency, an employee name change may also require an email address change. If so, refer to the Communication - Employee Email Address - Copy and Update Record procedure.

The new, active record should have an end date of 12/31/9999.
In order to avoid a failure during Year End Social Security Verification, the name fields should match the Social Security Card exactly.
If the name change is due to a change in marital status, update accordingly.
