Almost half of registered CEA members have not indicated who should receive their benefit if the worst happens. Most members choose their kids. But what if your grandmother is struggling on a fixed income? Or your nephew needs college money? By naming your beneficiaries, you can help whoever needs the support most.
If you’ve chosen beneficiaries before or have experienced a life-changing event, please reconfirm your choice. It only takes a few minutes, so click here and name your beneficiaries now.
