Beneficiary Designation Forms
You may name a beneficiary or change your beneficiary designation by completing the following Pension Fund Registration Form for Beneficiary Designation, and returning it to the Pension Fund office.
If you are currently receiving retirement benefits with the Ten Year Certain option, and wish to change your beneficiary, please complete the following Ten Year Certain Beneficiary Designation Change Form, and return it to the Pension Fund office.
- If you die without naming a beneficiary, any benefits payable will be paid to the first of those who survive you in the following order: your spouse; your surviving children and descendants of your deceased children; your parents; your brothers and sisters. If none of these survive you, any benefits payable will be paid to the administrator or executor of your estate, or according to Wisconsin statutes, in the discretion of the Trustees.
- If your spouse is named as your Beneficiary, and you divorce, the beneficiary designation is cancelled on the date of divorce. If you want your ex-spouse to remain as your beneficiary, a new Pension Fund Registration Form for Beneficiary Designation must be completed after the divorce to re-designate your ex-spouse as your beneficiary.
