MMC Benefits Handbook
Impact on Benefits
You must remove your spouse from the Company benefit coverage within 30 calendar days of your spouse's death.
You should file a claim for benefits if your spouse was covered under any of these plans:
  • 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 spouse's death was the result of an accident)
  • Group Variable Universal Life
  • Personal Life Insurance
If your spouse was employed, you should contact your spouse's employer to find out about any death benefits to which you may be entitled. You should also contact any private insurance companies with whom your spouse may have had insurance coverage.
You may want to review your beneficiary elections for your benefit plans.
After your spouse's death, you may be reimbursed for eligible medical, dental, health care and/or dependent care flexible spending account expenses incurred prior to your spouse's death.
