The annual Benefit Statements were mailed to all annuitants and survivors on April 6 and 7 with the March Informer newsletter. Beginning this year, your statement will only show the last four numbers of your Social Security number to help protect you from identity theft, which has become one of the most frequent and costly crimes in the U.S.
The Benefit Statement also contains information on group health, SERS beneficiaries, and life insurance beneficiaries. Please pay special attention to the life insurance beneficiary designation section. This information is maintained by the Minnesota Life Insurance Company, and has provided SERS with the beneficiary(ies) you have on file with their office.
Refer to your Benefit Statement during the annual Benefit Choice insurance enrollment period in May.
