Nevada State Judicial Department
Sec. § 2A.140
Benefits for survivor beneficiary and additional payees.


1.

A judge of the Court of Appeals may designate, in writing, a survivor beneficiary and one or more additional payees to receive the payments provided pursuant to this section if the judge is unmarried on the date of his or her death. A designation pursuant to this section must be made on a form approved by the Court Administrator. If the judge has designated one or more payees in addition to the survivor beneficiary, the judge must designate the percentage of the payments that the survivor beneficiary and each additional payee is entitled to receive.

2.

Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, if a judge of the Court of Appeals at the time of his or her death had retired and was then receiving a pension pursuant to the provisions of NRS 2A.100, or if at the time of his or her death the judge had not retired but had performed sufficient service for retirement pursuant to the provisions of NRS 2A.100, the survivor beneficiary designated pursuant to subsection 1, if the survivor beneficiary has attained the age of 60 years, is entitled, until his or her death, to receive monthly payments of $2,500 per month. If the judge had designated one or more payees in addition to the survivor beneficiary pursuant to subsection 1, the monthly payments paid pursuant to this subsection must be divided between the survivor beneficiary and any additional payee in the proportion designated by the judge pursuant to subsection 1.

3.

Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, if a survivor beneficiary of a judge is not eligible to receive benefits pursuant to subsection 2, the survivor beneficiary is entitled, until his or her death or until he or she becomes eligible to receive those benefits, to receive payments equal in amount to the payment provided in subsection 1 of NRS 286.67675 for the survivor beneficiary of a deceased member of the Public Employees Retirement System. If the judge had designated one or more payees in addition to the survivor beneficiary pursuant to subsection 1, the payments paid pursuant to this subsection must be divided between the survivor beneficiary and any additional payee in the proportion designated by the judge pursuant to subsection 1.

4.

To obtain the benefits authorized by subsection 3, the survivor beneficiary must make application to the Executive Officer of the Public Employees Retirement Board and furnish such information as may be required pursuant to reasonable regulations adopted for the purpose of carrying out the intent of this section.

5.

Any person receiving a benefit pursuant to the provisions of this section is entitled to receive postretirement increases equal to those provided for persons retired pursuant to the Public Employees Retirement System.

6.

It is the intent of this section that no special fund be created for the purpose of paying these benefits, and all payments made pursuant to the provisions of this section are to be made out of and charged to the Judicial Retirement Fund established pursuant to NRS 1A.160.
