Update your emergency contact information in PeopleSoft

It’s important to review and update your personal contact information in PeopleSoft in case we need to urgently reach you or your emergency contact. By making sure your information is current:

  • Your emergency contact can be notified if something happens to you at work.
  • Someone at King County can reach you with information about building closures, safety directives, and other time-sensitive issues.
  • You can receive information at the email address and phone number you prefer.

Here’s how:

  1. Sign in to PeopleSoft. You can also access PeopleSoft from home: ess.kingcounty.gov.
  2. Go to Personal Details
  3. Make sure all items under Addresses, Contact Details, and Emergency Contacts are are up-to-date. You can also choose to complete the Ethnic Groups, Disability, and Military Status fields.
  4. Save any changes.
