A beneficiary is the person that you designate to receive certain benefits after your death. You can have multiple beneficiaries.
Because your beneficiaries may be eligible for death and/or survivor benefits, it’s important to keep your designation updated before and after your retirement.
MORE ABOUT CHANGING YOUR BENEFICIARY
Retirees may only change certain beneficiary designations for those persons who are to receive a lump sum payment.
You can download the Beneficiary Designation Form on the Forms page.
Beneficiary designations can be affected by dissolution of marriage or termination of registered domestic partnership. If you are either a member or a former spouse of a member, please call our main number at (800) 732-6477 for more information regarding beneficiary selections.
