PROVIDENCE â€“ Most of the stateâ€™s Treasury offices will move from Providence to Warwick effective Dec. 5.
The division of Unclaimed Property, Investment and Cash Management; the Crime Victimsâ€™ Compensation Program; and the Employeesâ€™ Retirement System of Rhode Island will move from their current location in Providence â€“ 40 Fountain St. â€“ to 50 Service Ave in Warwick.
The move should save the state about $450,000 in annual expenses and rent, a news release said. The Treasury committed to moving its division under Treasurer Frank Caprioâ€™s administration.
â€śMoving the majority of Treasury divisions to this state-owned facility will help streamline operations and allow staff to serve constituents more efficiently and effectively,â€ť said Raimondo in a news release Wednesday.
â€śBetter [free] parking, easy highway access and improved meeting space are all positive changes that should enhance the publicâ€™s interaction with Treasury.â€ť
The online system for the Employeesâ€™ Retirement System of Rhode Island will be unavailable as of Nov. 30 until Dec. 5, and the divisionâ€™s staff will be unable to receive email or voice mail. Pension payroll payments will be made as regularly scheduled, Raimondo said.
The new phone numbers are:
