Due to changes in the state’s civil marriage and domestic partnership laws in 2012, you may have the opportunity to change the survivor on your retirement benefit this year (before December 31, 2014).

If you:

  • Retired from PERS, TRS, SERS, PSERS or LEOFF 1
  • Became part of a Washington State Registered Domestic Partnership or marriage
    • after you retired, and
    • before January 1, 2014

Please contact DRS if you have any questions about your pension benefits.
