Knowledge Bank: Employee Death
A brief overview of the process to complete the action.
When an employee dies, the surviving family members or employee-designated beneficiaries may be eligible for certain benefits.
For employees with active appointments as well as those who have been medically separated, the death should be reported as soon as possible to the employee’s supervisor so notifications can be made and paperwork started. UCSF Human Resources can help you locate the supervisor. Click here and enter the employee’s name.
For retired employees, the retiree’s family should notify UC Retirement Administration Service Center at 1-800-888-8267.
