Beneficiaries & Survivors

Once you are retired, you cannot change your survivor under any option. In other words, your new spouse cannot receive a monthly benefit payment after your death.

However, your new spouse is automatically the primary beneficiary for a one-time, taxable death benefit of $10,000. If your spouse consents, you can designate a different beneficiary or additional beneficiaries for this benefit using the beneficiary form on our website.
