In the event of the death of a member prior to retirement, the beneficiary is entitled to a refund of the total of the employee’s and the employer’s contributions with growth to the date of death.

Within 60 days after the employer learns of the death of a member who has not yet retired, the employer must provide the deceased employee’s named beneficiary or legal representative with a statement of any death benefits available.

Immediately upon learning of a member’s death the FBP Administrator should be notified so that a NOTICE OF DEATH form can be submitted.  A copy of the death certificate will be required to complete the request.
