Increasing Your Survivor Pension

You can choose to increase your survivor pension to 65, 70 or 75%. You will incur a higher reduction if you elect this option.

Once you receive your first pension payment, you cannot revoke a survivor pension increase. If you change your mind, you can decrease your survivor option at any time before your pension begins.
