MyPortal - create mailing address
Use this procedure to create a Mailing Address if it is different from your Permanent Residence Address. Mailing Address is not required.
This is the address where you receive mail if it is different from your permanent residence address.
Refer to MyPortal – Display Out of State Work Location Address if you are working out of state.
Select the My Addresses tile to manage your Mailing Address.
Click the Mailing Address tab and click the Create button in the upper right corner.
Employees who are not the leave approvers will not see a manager name displayed in the header below Organizational Unit.
If a manager’s position is double filled, the manager name displayed on the header may not be an employee’s direct manager. Contact your manager or HR/Payroll office at HereToHelp@ofm.wa.gov for questions.
Enter your Mailing Address information and click the Save button on the bottom of the page.
County and State: The country will default to USA. If your Mailing Address or Phone Number are outside of the USA, contact your Human Resources office.
Optional Communication: This includes optional contact information such as work phone, cell phone, fax, etc.
Validity Period: This will automatically display the next day’s date. Your Mailing Address information will be effective from that date forward. No current day or retro dates allowed.

Phone Number: You will receive an error message in the lower left corner of the page if an invalid phone format is entered or if you do not provide an area code.
Backspace button of the browser: If your cursor is not in an editable field and you hit the back space, it will take you to the home page and you will lose any updates. This is standard behavior in most browsers, with the exception of Google Chrome.
Address changes are updated within 24 hours in the Statewide HR/Payroll system; however, certain items such as your payroll check or W2 may not be updated prior to mailing. Contact your HR Payroll or Benefits Office if you have questions or concerns.
