A survivor’s benefit of $5,000 shall be paid to the designated beneficiary(ies) along with the provisions of the members’ retirement option. Retirees may name a different beneficiary for the $5,000 survivor benefit than is named for the retirement plan. Beneficiaries may also assign all or a portion of the death benefit to a licensed funeral home. You may download the beneficiary form here.
