Beneficiary Updates/Changes

It is very important that employees keep their retirement beneficiary up to date.

TCRS Members

Please click on the following link to review a chart to assist you in selecting a beneficiary: Selecting a Beneficiary Adobe PDF

All employees who began participating in the TCRS plan after July 1, 1981 may only list one beneficiary. Payment will be made in the form of an annuity. Estates and multiple beneficiaries are not eligible for payment of an annuity.

To update your beneficiary you may access the beneficiary change form by clicking on the following link: Beneficiary Change Form Adobe PDF. Our office can notarize this form for you but only if you sign the form in front of a HR staff member.
