Tell us if a beneficiary dies

If one of your beneficiaries dies, you can update your beneficiary information.

If a beneficiary dies, we recommend you update your beneficiary   information. This also applies if you named an organization as a beneficiary and it no longer exists.

If you have not yet retired, you can name a new beneficiary by either:

  • Signing in to My Account to make your change immediately
  • Submitting the Nomination of beneficiary (pre-retirement) form to BC's Municipal Pension Plan

If you do not name a new beneficiary, your beneficiary is automatically your estate.

If you have retired, your ability to name a new beneficiary may be restricted, depending on the pension option you chose at retirement. You can find this information on your semi-annual statement. If you are able to name a new beneficiary, you can do so by submitting the Change of beneficiary form for retired members.
