Need for the Document
A survivor benefit is a benefit which is paid by a pension plan to the designated beneficiary of an employee (usually a spouse) upon the death of the employee.

In most cases, the employee must make an affirmative election to establish these survivor benefits, and must always keep a current beneficiary designation on file with the Plan.

Information which might help
The survivor benefit is payable immediately, regardless of whether the death occurred during employment or retirement. It is fully indexed on an annual basis for the rest of your survivor's life.

Eligible survivors are the spouse and children; if there is no surviving spouse or child, the benefit is paid to other dependent relatives.
