Your Beneficiary

You should designate a beneficiary to receive your life insurance benefits upon your death. Beneficiaries can be a person or multiple people, charitable institutions or your estate. Once named, your beneficiary remains on file until you change it. If your family situation changes, review the beneficiaries on file and make updates if necessary. If you do not name a beneficiary, your life insurance benefits will automatically go to your estate. Designate your beneficiary in Self-Service.
