Check Your Beneficiary Designations
A beneficiary is someone you designate to receive benefits that are payable upon your death. Naming beneficiaries ensures that your assets are distributed according to your wishes. You may change your beneficiary designations at any time. It is important to review your beneficiary designations regularly, especially when you have experienced a life event such as birth or adoption of a child, marriage, or divorce. To change a beneficiary designation, complete a beneficiary form for each plan in which you are enrolled. Forms can be found on the UW System employee benefits website. Keep a copy of each beneficiary form for your records.
