Need to update your beneficiary?

Have you gotten married or divorced since you were hired? Maybe you have given birth or welcomed a new grandchild? All County employees name beneficiaries for their SDCERA benefits when they are hired. But don't forget to update your beneficiary when a major life event like a marriage or birth occurs.

Change or add beneficiaries with the Beneficiary Designation form. If you are retired, your selected benefit option may restrict which beneficiaries you can change. Refer to the Retirement Benefit Options fact sheet. Learn more about benefits for beneficiaries by visiting the survivor benefits section for your current status (active, retired or deferred).
