Employee Navigator is the primary record for beneficiary designations in the event of an untimely death. Insurance carriers do not maintain a record of beneficiaries. It is important to keep your beneficiary records updated and accurate. The following instructions outline two options for updating your beneficiary record. It is advised employees verify beneficiary records at least once a year, usually during open enrollment periods or following a qualifying life event. 
 
Note: Beneficiary fields will display only when an employee enrolls in Life Insurance. If Life Insurance is not offered or is waived, beneficiary fields will not appear. 

 

Two Options:

Updating Beneficiaries During your New Hire or Open Enrollment

1. Log into Employee Navigator, www.employeenavigator.com
