MMC Benefits Handbook
Who Gets Your Benefit
If you die before you begin receiving your account, your beneficiary will automatically receive your account balance.
The beneficiary that you designate on the Marsh & McLennan Companies Supplemental Savings & Investment Plan Beneficiary Designation Form is the beneficiary for your Supplemental Savings & Investment Plan account. However, if you were a participant in the Johnson & Higgins Supplemental Executive Savings Plan ("J&H Plan") and have a valid beneficiary designation on file for that plan, that designation will remain in force until changed for your Supplemental Savings & Investment Plan balance (which includes the prior J&H Plan balance).
If you do not have a Supplemental Savings & Investment Plan Beneficiary Designation Form in good order on file at the time of your death, any benefit payable to you under the Plan will be paid to your surviving spouse or, if you are not married at the time of your death, to your estate.
