Is It Time to Review Your Life Insurance Beneficiary?

Published on

Designate your beneficiary today!

Beneficiaries are the most important part of life insurance. It’s important that they be reviewed and updated annually and any time you have a major life event. Even if you believe the selected individual may receive the benefit by default, designating a beneficiary expedites payment and ensures the proceeds from your policy will be distributed according to your wishes. Nothing overrides your choice of designated beneficiary, not even a living will.

If you have not designated a beneficiary for your group life insurance benefits through the State of Mississippi yet, please follow the instructions below.
