How will the account be distributed if my beneficiary is not my spouse?

If you die with money in your account and your beneficiary is an individual other than your spouse, an account will be established in your beneficiary's name.
(1) For rules governing distribution to an entity other than an individual (e.g., a trust, estate, or organization), see WAC 415-501-493.
(2) The distribution options will be provided to your beneficiary when DCP is notified of your death, and will be based on treasury rules in effect at that time.
(3) The department must receive your beneficiary's election at least 30 days before distribution is to begin.
(4) If your beneficiary dies before the entire account is exhausted, the remainder of the account will be paid according to their beneficiary election(s) on file (see WAC 415-501-480). If there is no beneficiary election on file, the remaining balance will be paid to their estate.
