Life Insurance Beneficiary Changes

How Do I Change My Baltimore County Life Insurance Beneficiary?

It is very important that you update your beneficiary designations as your life situation changes (e.g., marriage, divorce, death, birth of a child, etc.) to ensure that your life insurance proceeds are paid to the appropriate person(s). A change in your life insurance beneficiary election does not change your pension beneficiary designation; they are separate elections and must be updated separately.

• You have to established an online account. Follow the instructions to create your account.

•Your basic life insurance benefit plus your additional benefit (if elected) will be paid to the beneficiary(ies) named. You may select a person(s), your estate, or an organization, such as a charity, as your beneficiary(ies). You must designate a primary beneficiary and have the option of designating contingent beneficiaries. A primary beneficiary is the person(s) who will receive a benefit upon your death. A contingent beneficiary is the person(s) who will receive a benefit in the event that all of the designated primary beneficiaries are deceased at the time of your death. If you name two or more beneficiaries in a class (primary or contingent), two or more surviving beneficiaries will share equally, unless you provide for unequal shares.
