Update Your Beneficiary

During the retirement process, you designated a beneficiary for your SFERS Plan to ensure a benefit is paid to the intended recipient upon your death. 

To update your beneficiary information, log in to mySFERS and add/edit beneficiary(ies) from your Beneficiary Dashboard. If you choose to submit a paper form, download and complete a new SFERS Designation of Beneficiary Form and return the completed form:

  1. by mail to 1145 Market Street, 5th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103, or
  2. deliver to the secure drop box in the elevator lobby of the 6th floor at 1145 Market Street. The drop box is accessible Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

Please have the form notarized before mailing or dropping it off at our office 

To submit the form in person, email us at [email protected] to schedule an appointment. Bring your picture ID (e.g. Driver’s License) and sign the form in the presence of a SFERS employee to witness your signature (the form does not need to be notarized if submitted in person).
