Supplemental Death Benefit (SDB)
Your city may provide a Supplemental Death Benefit (SDB) to its employees and retirees. If it does, your designated beneficiary will receive one of the following benefit amounts upon your death.
If your city provides an SDB for employees, and you die while employed, your beneficiary will receive an SDB equal to your annual salary.
Your city may also provide an SDB for retirees. If it does, $7,500 will be paid to your beneficiary when you die after retirement.
You can find out if your city offers an SDB by using the Plan Design tool on tmrs.com.
You can designate a beneficiary to receive this benefit online 24/7 using MyTMRS.
