Please note: This designation supersedes all prior designations. Beneficiaries will share equally if percentages are not provided and any amounts unpaid upon death will be divided equally. Primary and contingent beneficiaries must separately total 100.00%. The number of primary or contingent beneficiaries you may name is not limited. Attach an additional sheet if necessary.

If you are married and you are not listing your spouse as at least 50% of your primary beneficiary then your spouse will need to complete a Spousal Consent process with Empower Retirement Services.
