SB 5873 Extends Survivor Benefit
A bill dealing with survivor benefits was just dropped in the Senate. This bill is sponsored by Senators Conway, Bailey, Schoesler, Kohl-Welles and had its first reading on Feb 6. It was referred to Ways & Means. As yet I see no companion House bill.SB 5873 – Creates another opportunity for LEOFF 1 retirees to designate a spouse as a survivor beneficiary. If enacted, this bill would create a one-time window for LEOFF 1 retirees who did not previously designate a post-retirement spouse as a survivor beneficiary, another opportunity to do so.To qualify, the member must have been married to that spouse for at least two years prior to September 1, 2015.
