On-Line Beneficiary Designation Required for Insurance!

SMU provides Basic Group Life Insurance to benefits-eligible faculty and staff.  In addition, you may have elected voluntary Supplemental Life Insurance and/or Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) Insurance at some point during your SMU career. At the time you were enrolled in one or more of these plans, you were asked to submit a paper beneficiary designation form to the Department of Human Resources.

life insuranceEffective January 1, 2015, The Standard replaced Reliance Standard as the insurance carrier for these plans.  With this change, we are replacing paper beneficiary forms with on-line beneficiary designation.  All benefits-eligible faculty and staff are required to enter their beneficiaries via The Standard’s Online Beneficiary Designation System as soon as possible.

  • You must first register by entering your SMU ID or SSN, your date of birth and Company Key: standardbendes
  • Establish your User Name and Password
  • You will need name, SSN (optional), date of birth, address and phone number for each beneficiary

You must designate one or more beneficiaries for your Basic Group Life Insurance.  If you don’t have Supplemental Life and/or AD&D Insurance, bypass those sections of the online form.  It you don’t recall if you enrolled in Supplemental Life or AD&D insurance, please review your Benefits Summary by logging into my.smu.edu> Employee Self-Service> Benefits> Benefits Summary.

Additional information regarding the SMU Life and AD&D plans can be found on the Human Resources website under the Life & Disability tab.
