Survivor & Death Benefits
The survivor and death benefits provided by the Chicago Teachers' Pension Fund (CTPF) are an important part of a family's financial future. If you are aware of the death of a CTPF member, please contact Member Services, 312.641.4464, to report the death so CTPF can begin the process of paying any benefits due.
CTPF members should ensure that they have designated a beneficiary. If you have not done so, or need to update your beneficiary, download and complete the Form 105: Designation of Beneficiary Form.
Surviving beneficiaries will be contacted by CTPF to initiate the application process. The Death Benefit Application will be sent to all beneficiaries, which provides a detailed list of required documents that must accompany the application in order to receive death benefit payment.
