Death Benefits

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 recent beneficiary designation on file with IPERS.

If you are a beneficiary, it's important to understand how IPERS death benefits work and what you need to do to begin receiving benefits.
