Benefits In The Event Of An Employee's Death


  • The Tennessee Board of Regents has established a procedure to ensure that   survivors of deceased employees are promptly informed regarding payment of earned wages and any other benefits to which they may be entitled.


  • A Designation of Beneficiary form (included in the employee’s benefit packet) will facilitate such disbursement in the event of death.
  • Human Resources shall contact the survivor(s) and/or executor/administrator of the estate to advise them of available survivor assistance services and to request documentation required for release of final compensation payments.
  • For more detailed information, refer to TBR Guideline P-150 or contact Human  Resources.
