MMC Benefits Handbook
Choosing a Beneficiary
You may designate a Beneficiary online. If you are an active employee, go to Colleague Connect (, click Career & Rewards and select Transamerica under Tools. If you are a terminated employee, go to Connect (, select a region and click Transamerica.
You may also designate a beneficiary by completing a Beneficiary Designation Form and returning it in accordance with the form's instructions. Forms may be obtained online.
If you are married, your spouse is automatically your beneficiary. You must obtain your spouse's written, notarized consent to designate someone other than your spouse as a beneficiary.
You are not required to renew your beneficiary designation due to the transition to Transamerica as the Plan's recordkeeper on September 1, 2017. If you had a completed Beneficiary Designation Form on file prior to September 1, 2017, it will continue to be in effect until you make a change to your beneficiary designation (or you become married).
