For Retirees

How Do I…

Report a Death?


If your beneficiary has died, notify TMRS immediately.

If the retiree has died, notify TMRS immediately with the following information about the deceased person:

  • Full name
  • Social Security Number
  • Date of Death
  • Marital status

And family contact information:

  • Full name
  • Relationship to the deceased
  • Address
  • Phone Number

Our office will accept information regarding the deceased person; however, no account information can be released until the account information is thoroughly reviewed. TMRS will make contact with the designated beneficiary and/or family once the account has been reviewed.

Note: TMRS is not able to give detailed information about the decedent’s account to anyone except the designated beneficiary. If there is no designated beneficiary, a detailed letter will go to the decedent’s estate.
