Att death benefit

Being an Att  retiree, I have been told by other Att retirees that my widow will be entitled to a one time death payment benefit that is in addition to the Att 15 K insurance payment.  Any info about this matter would be appreciated.

For example:

  true or false?

  if true, how is the $ amount determined?

  suggested web sites where I might research this matter?

Thank you.

Your question should be directed to HR, not on an open forum.

You are eligible for the death benefit if you were an AT&T employee eligible for the death benefit on 1/1/1998, you terminated employment before 1/1/2008 and satisfied the Modified Rule of 75 when you terminated employment, and YOU DID NOT TAKE A FULL LUMP SUM DISTRIBUTION OF YOUR PENSION BENEFIT.
Until 1/1/2022, the beneficiary of an eligible person would have received a death benefit equal to person's annual salary on 12/31/1997 upon the person's death. After that the benefit became $25K.
