If you die after benefits begin, whatever form of payment that was in effect at the time of your death will determine the benefit, if any, paid to your spouse or beneficiary. If you were receiving the:

  • 50% Husband-and-Wife Option, your surviving spouse will receive 50% of the amount you had been receiving for the balance of his or her lifetime.
  • 75% Husband-and-Wife Option, your surviving spouse will receive 75% of the amount you had been receiving for the balance of his or her lifetime.
  • 100% Husband-and-Wife Option, your surviving spouse will receive 100% of the amount you had been receiving for the balance of his or her lifetime.
  • 60-Month Guarantee, your surviving spouse or designated beneficiary will receive the remaining monthly payments, if less than 60 monthly payments have been made to you.
