Designating a Beneficiary

Designating a Beneficiary

Have you named your beneficiary? Is your beneficiary designation up-to-date? It is important to officially designate—and update, as needed—the person(s) you want to receive benefits from the MIT pension, 401(k), and life insurance plans in the event of your death.

Name or Change Your Beneficiary

Follow the instructions under each plan to update your beneficiary designation.
