A Message from Darlene Perez, CTRB Administrator

Here is the change of address form: http://www.ct.gov/trb/lib/trb/formsandpubs/AddNameChg.pdf.
I hope everyone is enjoying their retirement in good health. I’m happy to report that more than ninety percent of you who are receiving a monthly benefit from us have your benefit electronically deposited into your bank accounts, which means you get your benefit in a timely manner regardless of where you are (on vacation, traveling or at home). From time to time we send out mailings to the address we have on file, therefore, it is extremely important to keep your address current with us. If you are enrolled in any of the TRB sponsored health insurance plans, we provide your address to our health insurance vendors. They also send out mailings from time to time. Health insurance information is not subject to the US Postal Service “forwarding order” process, therefore, it is possible that health insurance information could be mailed to you and you would not receive it if you do not change your address with us even if you leave a forwarding order on file with the post office.
Connecticut income tax rates were recently increased retro-active to January 1st, 2011. If you pay Connecticut income taxes, you may wish to increase your Connecticut tax deduction from your monthly benefit. Here is the tax change form: www.ct.gov/trb/lib/trb/formsandpubs/FedCTtax.pdf.
You can order forms by calling our toll-free number from within the United States at 1-800-504-1102 extension 1. Leave your name, address and the form you are requesting.
Forms are due one month prior to the change request effective date and require a signature but can be returned to this office by fax or regular mail.
