Who gets the balance of my monthly retirement allowance if I die partway through a month?
If you have entered retirement status and die partway through a month, a prorated portion of the defined benefit retirement allowance payable for the month of your death will be paid to the beneficiary named on the form in effect at the time of your death, if that person or entity survives your death. If your named beneficiary has died or is no longer in existence, the prorated amount will be paid to your estate.
