For beneficiary participants
Reporting a participant’s death
If you are the next-of-kin or legal representative of a deceased TSP participant, you should notify us immediately in the event of their death. You can do this in one of three ways:
- If the participant was an active federal employee or member of the uniformed services, report the death to the participant’s employing agency or service.
- Report the participant’s death to us by calling 1-877-968-3778. Press 3 from the main menu to speak to a Participant Service Representative.
- Read, complete, and submit Information Relating to Deceased Participant, Form TSP-17, along with the participant’s certified death certificate.
