21. How do I review the survivor option I elected?

  1. Before you retire: Survivor options are selected and contingent annuitants are designated at the time of your retirement. Please review the Survivor Options video.
  2. After you retire: After you have retired, you may not change your choice of survivor option, and (with limited exceptions under the 10- and 20-year Options) you may not change your choice of contingent annuitant.  To obtain information about your elections, contact the Retirement Services Division by phone, at  860-702-3480; by email, at rsd@ct.gov; or by fax, at 860 702-3489.
