Designate your beneficiary today

Life insurance provides peace of mind for you and your loved ones, safeguarding them from financial burdens if the unfortunate time comes that it’s needed.

To assure that your policy is designated to the correct person, and to protect your loved ones’ futures, we want to remind everyone to make sure you’ve designated your beneficiary information in Workday.

Even if you did not elect to purchase supplemental life insurance, USC is proud to provide all benefit-eligible employees with Basic Term Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment coverage in the amount of $50,000. You can select anyone, related or unrelated, other than your employer as your beneficiary(ies), including a trust or a charity organization if preferred. You can also designate more than one beneficiary and change them at any time.

Be sure to designate your beneficiary(ies) today, as not having one within Workday – should the policy be needed – will result in it being paid out in accordance with CA intestate guidelines.
