Review your Beneficiary Information

By having updated beneficiary information, you can rest easy knowing that your survivor benefits are distributed according to your wishes.

When was the last time you reviewed your life insurance and UM retirement plan beneficiary information? Have you gotten married or welcomed a new baby since making your original choice? Maybe you never designated a beneficiary at all.  You can name or change your beneficiaries at any time. Why not right now?

Links to beneficiary designation forms for life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment plans, along with PERS can be found at

For ORP and the 403(b) and MS Deferred Comp supplemental retirement plans, you will need to reach out to the individual vendor. Contact information can be found at
