  • Updating your Beneficiaries

    Mar 12, 2020, 8:17 AM By MOSERS
    Is there a way to update information online for beneficiaries w/o having to go through the whole data entry process for all of them?

    To update your beneficiary designations, you must first log in to myMOSERS. Complete and submit the Designation/Change of Beneficiaries form (“Life Ins Beneficiaries” from the Forms drop-down menu) for basic and optional life insurance. If you are a member of the MSEP 2011 or the Judicial Plan 2011, you should also complete and submit the Contribution Beneficiaries form for your employee contributions.

    We are working on a new system that will allow you to make a simple update without re-entering all information for your beneficiaries, but right now, with our current system, you must start over and re-enter all information about your beneficiaries if you want to update one of them.

  • Continuing Basic Life Insurance at Retirement

    Jan 28, 2019, 1:54 PM By MOSERS

    My wife also worked for the state of Missouri for 29 years. Her office closed just before she reached 80 and out. A year later she started collecting her state retirement when she turned 51. Does she still get the $5,000 life insurance like I do. I stayed for 35 years and received full backdrop at age 55. 

    No. Anyone who does not retire directly from state employment ;(within 60 days from their last day of state employment), does not get the automatic $5,000 in basic life insurance coverage at no cost to them.

    The state will continue to pay for $5,000 of basic life insurance coverage for life for retirees who meet the following conditions:

    • They had basic life insurance coverage as an active employee and did not terminate coverage at retirement.
    • They have a MOSERS retirement date that is within 60 days of when they left state employment.
