Survivor Death Benefit (Adjuncts)

Create a PDF of:

As of March 1, 2020, the PSC-CUNY Welfare Fund provides a $5,000 death benefit to the beneficiary of an Adjunct member covered by the Welfare Fund and the NYC Health Benefits Program who dies while in active service. Members must fill out the beneficiary form, available here and from their campus HR and benefits office, and have it on file at the benefits office. If members wish to change beneficiary(ies), a new form needs to be completed.

Designated beneficiaries have one year from the member's date of death to file a claim with the Welfare Fund office.

Please note that CUNY retirees who return to work as Adjuncts are not eligible for this Survivor Death Benefit.
