Can a retiree provide something for a surviving spouse after his or her death?

A disability allowance can include Survivorship Option only if the pensioner has 25 or more years of pension service. The election of a Survivorship Option is an important decision which should be carefully considered by a married employee. The Pension Office will provide estimates of Survivorship Option amounts to employees to assist them in making a decision to accept or reject a Survivorship Option.
