MMC Benefits Handbook
Who Gets Your Benefit
If you die before you begin receiving your account balance, your Beneficiary will automatically receive your account balance. If you did not choose a beneficiary and you are not married or your beneficiary dies before you, your estate is automatically your sole beneficiary and will be distributed according to the settlement of your estate. If you are married, your spouse will receive your account balance unless you designated another beneficiary with your spouse's written, notarized consent on the Plan's Beneficiary Designation Form.
