Certify Continuant Status

Published: June 20, 2018

We have mailed a Certification of Continued Eligibility to Receive SFERS Survivor Continuation Benefits Form to all qualified surviving spouses or domestic partners of a deceased SFERS member.  The certification requests that you certify your eligibility to receive benefits as a continuant under provisions of the San Francisco Charter.  It is essential that you sign and return the form to the Retirement System by the deadline indicated in the letter.

Continuants who do not return a notarized certification by the August 31, 2018 deadline are subject to suspension of benefits, effective the month following the deadline.  If you are unable to have the certification form notarized, you can sign the certification in our office witnessed by a SFERS staff member.  You will need to bring the form along with your picture ID (Driver’s License, passport, etc.) to our office located at 1145 Market Street, 5th floor, San Francisco CA 94103.

If you are a continuant and you do not receive a Certification of Continued Eligibility to Receive SFERS Survivor Continuation Benefits Form by July 9, 2018, please contact the retirement system at 415-487-7515.
