Basic Death Benefit
When an active, inactive, disabled, or retired member dies, UCRP pays a basic death benefit of $7,500 to the member's beneficiary, in addition to any monthly UCRP income that may be payable to eligible survivors or to the contingent annuitant. Beneficiaries of active, disabled, or inactive members also receive the CAP payment, if any.
When you die, part of your retirement benefit is paid to your surviving spouse or surviving eligible domestic partner (if you were married or in a partnership continuously from one full year before retirement until your death), or if none, to your eligible children, or if none, to your eligible dependent parents.*
