After the death of one of our active or inactive members or benefit recipients, the Massachusetts Teachers' Retirement System (MTRS) makes its best effort to identify and reach out to that person's survivors and/or estate to pay any remaining benefits that may be due. At times, however, these funds are not paid out either because we are unable to reach the survivors and/or estates, or because our office may not be contacted by them. To help the MTRS process these cases, we list the names of our former members with unclaimed funds here, in the hope that their survivors and/or estates will contact us to claim any funds that may be due.

If you are:

  • the executor or executrix, or
  • the survivor or beneficiary

of a deceased MTRS member or benefit recipient, and neither you nor the member’s estate has received a “final payment” of the deceased member’s retirement benefit, the MTRS may have unclaimed funds on account for you.

If you believe that the member’s estate or you may have unclaimed funds, please:

  1. REVIEW the list below to see if the deceased member’s name appears.
  2. If you find the deceased member’s name, please COMPLETE our Application for unclaimed funds  pdf format of Application for unclaimed funds
and return it to our main office, as indicated on the form. You must send us a completed form in order to make a claim for funds; because we need documentation of your eligibility to receive any funds, we cannot process a claim over the phone.

Unclaimed Funds

We are pleased to report that, from September 2007 (when this page was first posted) through January 12, 2016, the MTRS has returned a total of $681,642.85 to 199 different estates and beneficiaries of deceased members. Thank you for visiting our site and checking our list!
