Upon the death of an employee the employees’ family should notify their department of the death.  The following information should be provided to:

  • Name of the deceased
  • Date of Death
  • Name and address of the surviving spouse/domestic partner
  • Name of the executor and/or the individual reporting the death and the relationship to the deceased
  • Funeral arrangements

You should provide this information to the OneSource Rutgers Faculty and Staff Service Center by calling 732-745-SERV (7378).  After receiving the information from the department, we will notify the insurance and retirement carriers.  We will also contact the family to coordinate the transition of the benefits.

If the deceased was on payroll at the time of death, the employee’s Supervisor should submit a Termination request and attach an updated and completed Staff Absence Record form via Manager Self Service in the Human Capital Management (HCM) system.
