Members are permitted to change the beneficiary designated on their original Enrollment Card, either by completing a Member Benefits Change form, or by entering the information in WEBS™ and signing the WEBS™-generated Application form. In either case, the form must be signed and dated in ink by the member. Correction fluid/tape is not acceptable. The original, signed documentation must be produced in the case of a death claim.

If the beneficiary is revocable, either complete the paper Member Benefits Change form or enter directly in WEBS™, and print the application form. Email, fax, or mail a copy to GroupHEALTH and securely file the original with the Enrollment Card.

If the beneficiary is irrevocable, the same form must be completed, plus the employee must also provide one of the following documents:

  • Member Benefits Change form, signed by the irrevocable beneficiary, revoking his/her rights, or
  • Proof of death of the irrevocable beneficiary, or
  • In Quebec only, proof of divorce from the irrevocable beneficiary.
