Beneficiaries & Survivors


An ACERA member’s beneficiary is the person or persons they designate to receive death benefits from ACERA after their death. A member’s beneficiary can also be called a survivor.

This page is for both members and beneficiaries, with information for members on how to plan for their beneficiaries to receive death benefits, and for beneficiaries/survivors to understand what to do after an ACERA member’s death.
