I’m Getting Divorced

How to Update Your Personal Information

  • If your name is changing, contact Tufts Support Services (TSS). You will need to provide supporting paperwork, such as a divorce decree or signed court documents.
  • Update your address, emergency contact, and withholding (W-4) on eServe.
