Your Beneficiary

When you first enroll, you will designate your beneficiaries for your life insurance and retirement savings plans.  However, it is just as important to update your beneficiary information whenever your circumstances change.  Beneficiary designations can be made at any time, but may often coincide with certain qualifying events, such as the birth/adoption of a child, marriage or divorce.

Please note that you will need to designate your beneficiaries separately with each of the following, if you are enrolled:

Life Insurance Beneficiary - MetLife
