retire and continue to receive my pension payments?

for which you were paid for more than 40 hours for one
of the following job classifications that you worked
within the state of Alaska:
- in a job classification similar to those set forth in a
Collective Bargaining Agreement or a Special Agreement, whether or
not such employment is under the terms of a Collective Bargaining
Agreement or in a supervisory capacity over such job classification
- in the industry in which the participating employers participate
(any business activity of the type engaged in by the employers
maintaining the Plan)
My spouse was a retiree with the Pension Plan and has
died. Do I need to return his pension payment for
the month in which he died?

following his death you will need to return it. Be sure to
notify the Administrative Office as soon as practical of the death and you
will be instructed how to proceed.
