Death of a beneficiary

If one of your beneficiaries dies, you will need to update your beneficiary designations.

If your beneficiary   dies you will need to update your beneficiary information. This also applies if you named an organization as a beneficiary and the organization no longer exists.

If you have not yet retired, you can name a new beneficiary by either:

  • Signing in to My Account to make your change immediately
  • Submitting the Nomination of beneficiary (pre-retirement) form to the WorkSafeBC Pension Plan

If you have retired, your ability to name a new beneficiary may be restricted, depending on the pension option you chose at retirement. If you are able to name a new beneficiary, submit the Nomination of beneficiary (at retirement) form. Contact the plan for more information.
