It is important to keep beneficiary designations up to date. A beneficiary designation provides benefit vendors with information on who to contact in the event of an employee’s death. Without a valid beneficiary designation an employee’s funds may be tied up in costly escrow or estate proceedings upon their death.
Employees can update their beneficiary designations at any time by following the directions below.
All changes must be processed using the benefits enrollment system (Log into ConnectCarolina –>Click on Self Service –> Click on My Benefits –> Click on Benefits Enrollment) To initiate changes online, employees should:
- Log into your account using your ONYEN and password
- Click on “Enroll Now!”
- Select “Benefits”
- Click on the “View/Edit information” tab on the respective plan you are wanting to make the change
- Select “Beneficiaries Edit”
- Continue through the change process and be sure to click “SAVE”
