MMC Benefits Handbook
Special Death Benefit
The Company provides the Special Death Benefit to give immediate funds to your family in the event of your death. You are covered by this benefit if you are an active, eligible, US, employee and have completed at least one year of service. The benefit is generally payable even if you are disabled or on an authorized leave of absence at the time of death. This benefit does not apply to you if you are on Long Term Disability.
The amount of the Special Death Benefit will be equal to your monthly base salary, up to maximum payment of $5,000.
Payment of Benefits
Payment of the Special Death Benefit amount will be made as soon as possible to your surviving spouse or to your estate if there is no surviving spouse. Your spouse or a representative of your estate must notify your Human Resources representative of your death.
