Keep Your Beneficiary Designations Up-to-Date

What is a beneficiary?

A beneficiary is the person or persons you designate to receive any benefits payable upon your death. Naming beneficiaries ensures that your assets are distributed according to your wishes after your death.

Keep your beneficiary designations up-to-date

To protect your beneficiary(ies), review and update your beneficiary designations regularly. You may change your beneficiary designations at any time.  Review of your designations for possible changes is especially important when you have experienced a life event, such as the birth or adoption of a child, marriage, divorce, etc. Your assets are distributed according to the beneficiary designations that you have on file, so it is important to review and make any needed changes whenever your personal circumstances change.

How do I know what benefits I have?

Go to the Benefit Information module in My UW System, and click the “View Benefits Summary Detail” link to see your current benefit enrollments. Contact the benefits office with any questions regarding your coverage and coverage levels.

Completing/updating your beneficiary designations

Beneficiary designation forms can be found at: https://www.wisconsin.edu/ohrwd/formspubs/.  Click on each individual plan for the beneficiary designation form for that plan.  Follow the instructions to submit the form.

Make sure you keep a copy of each completed beneficiary form for your records. Return completed forms to the address on the form, not to the Benefits office.

If you are unsure of your current beneficiary designations, please complete a new beneficiary designation to ensure that your designations are current.

The following plans have a beneficiary designation form:

If you have a Tax-Sheltered Annuity (TSA) or Deferred Compensation account, make sure you review and update your beneficiary designations as needed. Contact the plan directly to update your beneficiary designations or, if you are enrolled in the TSA program, update your beneficiary online.

Volunteer Your Time

volunteer

Have some free time this summer? Want to make an impact in your community? Why not volunteer and help those in need? There are so many ways to get involved in the community from working with animals, the environment, veterans, housing, education, and the list goes on. Each month we will highlight one organization where you can volunteer your time and talent.

Before we dig deeper into specific organizations, we wanted to provide a few resources available to you to find out how you can start volunteering. Our HR website has a Volunteer Opportunities page with some great links for these resources. To get to that page, go to uwgb.edu/hr/employees/volunteer. Each month we will have a Featured Volunteer Opportunity where you can learn more about a specific organization. If you are passionate about a cause but don’t know what specific organization shares that passion, you can visit The Volunteer Center of Brown County’s website. There you can select a cause and it will show you some of the organizations that would love the help of volunteers. If you prefer to share your talents outside of Brown County there are volunteer resources available for other area communities as well. If you just want to volunteer and are not sure exactly where to start, you can try volunteermatch.org. This website will also help you find places that need volunteers but also will show you who has activities going on in the coming days if you want to try something different every time or support an organization’s activity.

If you have an organization you’d like to have featured or have a pictures of yourself donating your time to an organization, please e-mail Julie at flenzj@uwgb.edu with that information. As part of UWGB’s innitiative of Transformation we can use the time we volunteer to help change lives of others in our community for the better.

 

Student Hours Reduction

As a reminder, students must reduce their working schedules down to 25 hours per week for the next two weeks to make sure we are in compliance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). This change will be from June 26 to July 9. Starting July 10, students can go back up to 40 hours per week.

If you have any questions about this, please contact HR at hr@uwgb.edu or x2390.
