  • They must be entitled to receive a monthly SURS survivor benefit.

Surviving spouses wishing to request their own ULID account will need to contact Human Resources at (309) 438-8311 to determine eligibility. Human Resources will then process the request and take the necessary steps to create the account.

Once the account has been created, the account will need to be activated. See the following article for more information regarding account activation:
