Financial Protection for Peace of Mind
IPERS death benefits provide financial protection to eligible beneficiaries. They are designed to ease the financial strain that sometimes follows the death of a loved one.
Please notify IPERS as soon as possible after a member's death as this will help ensure that benefits are paid properly and timely. Benefits will be paid according to the most current beneficiary designation on file with IPERS.
As a beneficiary, it's important that you understand how IPERS death benefits work and what you need to do to begin receiving benefits.
