How to Enroll

No enrollment is necessary. This benefit is automatically provided when an employee is eligible.

Although there is no cost to cover your spouse and/or children, you must enroll them for coverage using Self-Service.

Designate a Beneficiary

Since Emory provides you with term life insurance, you should designate a beneficiary.

Your beneficiary is the person(s) who will receive your life insurance benefits when you (or your covered dependents) die. Your beneficiary can be one person or multiple people, charitable institutions or your estate.

Once named, your beneficiary remains on file until you make a change. If your family situation changes, you will want to review the beneficiaries on file and make updates if necessary. If you do not name a beneficiary, your life insurance benefits will be distributed in accordance with the policy.

Use Self-Service to designate or make changes your beneficiary at any time. View Step-by-Step Guide to Changing Beneficiaries.
