Why do I need to designate beneficiaries?
Your beneficiary is the person (or entity) who will receive the distributions from your life insurance policy. It is important to keep this information up to date.
Depending on the plan, you may be able to designate more than one beneficiary. The Zenefits system does not currently support tracking of contingent beneficiaries. In the event an employee wants to add contingent beneficiaries to their policy, they should reach out to their life insurance carrier directly.
Beneficiaries must be designated in Zenefits during Initial or Open Enrollment, but can be changed during the year.
