Beneficiary Designations
Life insurance beneficiary information must be entered before you will be able to finalize your open enrollment elections. If you enter your beneficiary information before enrolling, you will not need to re-enter the information when you enroll. As a reminder, life insurance beneficiary information was not converted into Workday upon its implementation. Once updated, the Workday beneficiary information will take the place of the beneficiary record currently on file.

For instructions on how to add or update your life insurance beneficiaries, reference the Add, Change or Remove Beneficiaries  tutorial. There is no change to the beneficiary process for the Retirement Savings Plan. To designate or update a beneficiary for the Retirement Savings Plan, visit TIAA online.
