February 2019: Take care of those who matter to you

Take care of those who matter to you

Have you ever thought about who would get your benefits in the event the unthinkable happens? If you don’t have anyone named, your benefits would be paid according to the plan rules. Or, if you haven’t updated your beneficiaries in a while, your benefits may go to someone who you don’t want them to go to. Take a minute to review who you have listed and make changes if needed.
