Change of Beneficiary

Life Insurance

You may elect whomever you wish as your beneficiary for Basic Life, Optional Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment insurance purposes. This can be changed any time by accessing Employee Self Service and updating your beneficiary information. The original signed Designation of Beneficiary Form and Voluntary Accident Insurance Plan forms must be submitted to HRHSE. In the event a claim is made and the updated form is not in your file, the claim will be paid in accordance with the beneficiary forms on file. In the absence of a form, it will be paid to the estate.


Your spouse/common-law spouse (if you have cohabited for a period greater than three years) is by law your pension beneficiary. However you may designate whomever you wish as contingent beneficiaries. To change a beneficiary you must complete a new Designation of Beneficiary Form.

  • UAPP Designation of Beneficiary form
  • PSPP Designation of Beneficiary form.

For more information about changing your PSPP Beneficiary, please contact the PSPP Member Services Centre (toll-free in Canada) at 1-877-453-1PSP (1777) or visit the PSPP Member Services Centre webpage.
