Change to Survivor Benefit Plan Annuity Accounts

Effective April 1st all Annuity applications will require the submission of a photocopy of the annuitant’s Social Security Card. If the annuitant does not submit a photocopy of the Social Security card with the application, the annuity will be established and the annuitant will be allotted 90 days to submit the photocopy of the SS Card. If it is not received in 90 days, the account will be suspended and no further payments will be made until a photocopy of the card is received.
