How do I update my life insurance and retirement plans to include my spouse or domestic partner?
Visit Atlas to evaluate your participation in the MIT Optional Life Insurance Plan. Spouse or partner life insurance coverage can be added within 31 days from the date of your marriage or domestic partnership or during Open Enrollment.
Review and update your beneficiaries under the MIT Optional Life Insurance Plan, the MIT Basic Retirement Plan and the MIT Supplemental 401(k) Plan to ensure they are current. If you are married and your most recent beneficiary designation on file for the MIT Retirement Plan does not designate your spouse as the sole primary beneficiary, and does not have spousal consent for this designation, your spouse will be beneficiary of 100% of your account balance.
