- Must retirees and beneficiaries attest to certain information each year?
Not less frequently than once every two years, every public pension retiree and the surviving beneficiaries of such deceased retirees, receive affidavits from their retirement board. The purpose of this affidavit is to verify that the retiree/beneficiary is living and to update other key information such as his/her current address. Confirmation of a beneficiary’s dependency status is also sought where it is relevant to continued receipt of benefits. Any retiree/beneficiary who knowingly makes false responses on this affidavit will be investigated for fraud. Anyone who signs an affidavit who is other than the retiree, his/her beneficiary, or an individual with a valid power of attorney will be investigated for fraud.
