WHEN THERE IS A LOSS
DOWNLOAD THE FORM
To receive Survivor Benefits, fill out the application and either print and mail it back, or upload the form and all related documents using our Message Center. Everything you need to get started is included in the application, and you must fully complete each section to avoid a delay. It is very important that you provide us with timely notice of the member’s death along with the completed Survivor Benefits application. Any retroactive benefit payments that you would otherwise be eligible to receive are limited to the 12-month period prior to the date the Fund receives written notification.
