MMC Benefits Handbook
Choosing a Beneficiary
You may designate a Beneficiary online. If you are an active employee, go to Colleague Connect ( Select Pay & Benefits, and click My Pay & Benefits, select Transamerica under Savings & Financial Planning. If you are a terminated employee, go to and select 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 were 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).
