Funeral Planning and KPERS $4,000 Retiree Death Benefit


Dealing with financial issues related to funeral arrangements can be difficult. KPERS can help make it easier. The Retirement System provides a $4,000 lump-sum death benefit that can be used to pay for funeral expenses.

Almost all retirees have the death benefit, no matter which retirement option they chose when they retired. The benefit can be paid to a funeral establishment or another beneficiary.
