When you become covered under the plan, you must provide your beneficiary designations via the Benelogic enrollment website. Also, remember that changes in your family status (such as marriage, divorce, or new children) do not automatically alter or revoke your previous designations. Therefore, you must review your beneficiary designations from time to time. If you need to change your beneficiary designation, please use these instructions.
