What happens to my benefit if my beneficiary dies before I do?
You new survivor will only receive contributions that are left on deposit (if any and if you selected the Unmodified or Option 1) and the one time lump sum death benefit payment (if applicable). He/she will not receive a continuance, nor will your benefit increase.
