How do I designate my beneficiaries?

You have the right to designate a beneficiary or beneficiaries to receive your accumulated deferrals in the event of your death. You may change your beneficiary designation at any time online, or by filing a beneficiary change form with the department. The change will take effect upon the department's receipt of the beneficiary change form.
You may name:
(1) An organization or person, including unborn or later adopted children. However, unborn or later adopted children must be specifically designated as beneficiaries on the form. You must indicate the date of birth for any living person you name as a beneficiary.
(2) Your estate.
(3) An existing trust or a trust that is to be established under your last will. For an existing trust, you must provide a copy of the trust document and the name, address and telephone number of the current trustee.
You may name contingent beneficiaries in addition to primary beneficiaries.
