Why are beneficiaries important?

Naming a beneficiary or beneficiaries is critical to assure that proceeds from your group life insurance coverage are distributed according to your wishes. Recipients can be individuals, an organization, a trust, or your estate.

The primary beneficiary will be the recipient of your group life insurance proceeds in the event of your death.

Contingent beneficiaries are important because, if the primary beneficiary predeceases you, the proceeds of your group life insurance coverage are distributed among this second group.
