What happens if I die while a City employee?

If you have a legal spouse at the time of your death, a survivor's benefit in the amount of 30% of your basic monthly earnings will be paid until the earlier of your spouse's death or second anniversary of remarriage. The amount of this benefit will be increased by 5% for one eligible child and 10% for two or more eligible children. This children's benefit is payable until the earliest of the child's death, marriage or attainment of age 21.
