The annual Benefit Statements were mailed to all annuitants and survivors on April 1 with the March Informer newsletter. Again this year, your statement only shows the last four numbers of your Social Security number to help protect you from identity theft.
The Benefit Statement contains information on group health, SERS beneficiaries, and life insurance beneficiaries. Refer to your Statement during the annual Benefit Choice insurance enrollment period in May.
Pay special attention to the life insurance beneficiary designation section of your Statement. This information is maintained by the Minnesota Life Insurance Company, who provided us with the beneficiary(ies) you have on file with their office.
If you don't receive your statement by April 15, contact SERS at 217-785-7444 (Springfield) or 312-814-5853 (Chicago).
