  • Potential Survivor Benefits

    Apr 17, 2020, 12:17 PM By MOSERS

    Spring is the perfect time to update your employees about their potential survivor benefits. We understand that this can be a difficult topic for our members and their loved ones, but we would like to encourage them to educate themselves and contact MOSERS with any concerns or questions.

    The first steps survivors should take when a member dies are as follows:

    • Contact us as soon as possible when anyone receiving (or eligible for) a MOSERS benefit dies.
    • MOSERS will send you a letter explaining any benefits available to you.
    • Apply. You must complete and return the forms we send to you. We can’t pay benefits to survivors and beneficiaries without the required documents.
    • Submit the death certificate and an acceptable proof-of-age-and-lawful-presence document.
    • If you want to have insurance proceeds pay funeral expenses, send us the assignment paperwork and an itemized statement of expenses from the funeral home.
    • Contact other benefit providers such as MO Deferred CompMCHCP, and  Social Security.

    Please direct them to our Death page for more important information.
