IAP Pre-Retirement Designation of Beneficiary Packet (Please note that there is no form to designate a beneficiary for your OPSRP pension, as statute only allows PERS to pay a death benefit to a member's spouse, or to any other person who is constitutionally required to be treated in the same manner as a spouse for the purpose of retirement benefits.
