A judge must be an elected official for 10 years to be eligible for the RMBA. More information about eligibility is available in the plan document. A Judge’s surviving spouse is eligible if they were married to the Judge at the time of retirement eligibility. A form from Key Benefit, the RMBA plan administrator, is included in the welcome packet where the member may list their spouse and eligible dependents. While not required, it is highly recommended that this form be completed.
