Updating Beneficiaries

As you navigate life changes such as marriage, divorce, or the birth of a child, it is important to maintain up-to-date beneficiary information with ERSC. While ERSC is the first stop for some of your beneficiary paperwork, ERSC staff is not able to report or confirm the beneficiaries on your existing plans. If you are uncertain of your earlier decisions, submit a new beneficiary form to make sure your beneficiaries are in line with your wishes. Beneficiaries may be updated at any time by completing and submitting the following forms as indicated. Please be sure to save a copy of all forms for your records.
