Check your beneficiaries

The PEBB Program’s annual open enrollment (November 1 through 30) is a good time to check your beneficiary information for your PEBB life insurance and health savings account (HSA) if you have one. Not only is it important to make sure you have the right person (or people) listed, but that all contact information is up to date.

It’s also a good idea to check your beneficiaries for any other insurance or financial accounts (such as retirement savings) if you have them.

To check your current beneficiaries and make changes:

Life insurance – Log into the MetLife Portal, My Benefits, and click on Beneficiaries. You can also call MetLife at 1-833-854-9624, Monday through Friday, 5 a.m. to 8 p.m., Pacific time.

Health savings account (HSA) – If you have an HSA, log into your HealthEquity account and visit the Profile Details webpage. You can also complete the Beneficiary Designation form and mail or fax the form to HealthEquity. The form is available under Documents and Forms on the HealthEquity website.

Dual enrollment reminder

Remember, you cannot enroll in health plans under both the PEBB Program and School Employees Benefits Board (SEBB) Program as an employee or as a dependent. You may waive your enrollment in PEBB medical to enroll in SEBB medical only if you are also enrolling in SEBB dental and vision. In doing so, you waive your enrollment in PEBB dental. You can only waive PEBB dental coverage if you enroll in SEBB medical, dental, and vision coverage, and in specific situations.

FSA and DCAP reminder

You must (re)enroll EACH YEAR. FSA/DCAP elections do NOT roll over year to year.

To enroll in the Medical Flexible Spending Arrangement (FSA), Limited Purpose FSA, or the Dependent Care Assistance Program (DCAP):
