Update your life insurance beneficiaries

Life and disability insurance are important to those who depend on you for financial security. Survivor benefits provide financial assistance in your absence.

It’s important to review and keep your beneficiaries up to date for the life and accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) coverage you have through King County. By designating a beneficiary, you ensure the person of your choice receives the proceeds.

If you have not designated beneficiaries, you will be receiving two emails and a home mailer from the life and AD&D insurance plan manager, Securian Financial, the parent company of Minnesota Life. Please do not discard these messages. Rather, take action to ensure your life insurance and AD&D benefits are paid according to your wishes and without delay.

If you already selected beneficiaries, here’s how you can review your current designations:

  • Go to LifeBenefits.com
  • Enter your User ID: KCO followed by your employee ID number (PeopleSoft ID). For example, if your employee ID is 000012345, enter KCO000012345. Your employee ID number can be found on your King County pay advice.
  • Password: You set this password on your initial visit to the site. If you have never designated a beneficiary, Securian will be sending you your initial password.

To learn more, go to Naming a Beneficiary. For assistance, call Securian at 877-494-1754.
