MMC Benefits Handbook
Impact on Benefits
You must remove your child from the Company benefit coverage within 30 calendar days of your child's death.
You should file a claim for benefits for plans your child was covered under:
  • Business Travel Accident Insurance (if your spouse was approved to accompany you while traveling on Company business or relocation trips that are paid for by the Company)
  • Voluntary AD&D (if your child's death was the result of an accident)
  • Group Variable Universal Life
  • Personal Life Insurance
After your child's death, you may be reimbursed for eligible medical, dental, health care and/or dependent care flexible spending account expenses incurred prior to your child's death.
You should contact the Social Security Administration to see if you are entitled to a death/survivor benefit.
