Beneficiaries of City of San Diego Retirees are eligible for certain death benefits, dependent on the status of the SDCERS Member at the time of his or her death. Eligibility for these death benefits also depends on the retirement benefit option the Member chose at the time of retirement or entry into DROP.

The Death Benefits booklet provides detailed information on the various benefits, such as the "Active Death Benefit" (for Active employees not yet eligible to retire), the "Death While Eligible Benefit" (for Active Members eligible to retire), the "Industrial Death Benefit" (if death is work-related), and death benefits for Active DROP Members.
