Dependent Survivor Coverage

Enrolled dependents may be eligible to continue NYSHIP coverage if the enrollee predeceases them. See the following for dependent survivor eligibility rules. To ensure that dependent survivors receive the benefits to which they are entitled, it is important to send a copy of the enrollee’s death certificate to the Employee Benefits Division as soon as possible. Notification to a retirement system does not necessarily satisfy this requirement.
