If your home mailing address has changed, it is important that you update your records with Shepherd University and its affiliated groups. To do that, you will need to submit that change to several different places. Please follow the instructions below in order to update your records.
To change your mailing address in Banner, which is Shepherd University’s primary information system, please log into RAIL (http://www.shepherd.edu/rail). Click on Personal Information and then select Update Addresses and Phones. There you will be able to change your home mailing address. If you find when you go into RAIL that you do not have a home mailing address listed, please contact the Human Resources staff so that they can enter an address for you. After they do that, you can make changes as needed in the future.
Once you have changed your mailing address in RAIL, an email notification automatically will be generated to the Human Resources Office and the Payroll Office, so you do not need to contact those offices individually to update your mailing address.
To change your mailing address with the West Virginia Public Employees Insurance Agency (PEIA), please log into PEIA’s Benefits Administration System (https://openenrollment.wvpeia.com/YRE/). You will need to register if this is the first time you have used PEIA’s Benefits Administration System.
To change your mailing address with TIAA, please log into TIAA’s website (http://www.tiaa.org). You will need to register if this is the first time you have accessed your TIAA-CREF records online. Click on My Profile at the top of the page; next click on Contact Information and eDelivery Preferences; and, finally, click on Edit My Contact Information. There you can type in your new address information.
To change your mailing address with Empower Retirement (formerly Great West), please log into Great West’s website (http://www.empower-retirement.com). You may also phone them at 866-467-7756. Shepherd University’s plan number is 350209-03.
