manage your personal information

There are some important tasks you'll want to complete right away, before you lose access to the Chevron intranet network and your Chevron email.

As an employee with access to the Chevron intranet network you are currently able to use the convenient automatic login for the benefit websites listed below. However, automatic login is not available when you leave the Chevron network. 

Take some time now to make sure you know your login information or reset your password for these websites; it’s likely you’ll need access to them prior to and after you leave the Chevron network. To get started, access each of the links below. First, read about what you can do on the website to determine if you’ll continue to need access, then take steps to make sure you can manually log in to your account and keep the information in a safe place for the future.

  • BenefitConnect | Choose login with password to test your account access. When you created an account, you were allowed to use any email of your choice – a Chevron email or a personal email. If you already created an account using your Chevron email address, you can continue to use this email to log in to the website even after you leave Chevron. However, you will not be able to access this email account later for site security or site functions. For this reason, you are strongly encouraged to update the email you use to access the BenefitConnect website to a personal email account. You can change the email account yourself, prior to leaving Chevron, by logging in to BenefitConnect, clicking on your name in the upper right corner of the home page, then choosing My Account. You can also call the HR Service Center for assistance with changing a Chevron email to a personal email for account access.
  • Fidelity | Choose login with password to test your account access. If you don’t remember your password, see the Forgot login instructions.
  • WebMD | Choose employees (from home) to test your account access and/or create an account to login. Note that you will only need access to this website after you leave Chevron if you are eligible for and choose COBRA coverage for the Healthy Heart Program. If you don’t remember your password, see the Forgot Password instructions.

You're strongly encouraged to download/print a recent copy of the following records you may need to keep for upcoming tax and other financial needs:

If you have elected electronic distribution for some of your Chevron pay and benefits materials, be sure to update your communication preferences prior to leaving Chevron. 

  • Pay statement. Change your delivery method to send a paper copy to your mailing address. Go to MyHR – Employee Services to get started (Chevron intranet only). If you no longer have Chevron intranet access, please contact Payroll Operations directly at payroll@chevron.com
  • W-2 year-end statement. Change your delivery method to send a paper copy to your mailing address. Go to MyHR – Employee Services to get started (Chevron intranet only). If you no longer have Chevron intranet access, please contact Payroll Operations directly at payroll@chevron.com
  • Benefit communications. You can continue to receive health, welfare and pension benefit materials electronically, but be sure to use a personal email account - not your Chevron email. Go to BenefitConnect and choose the I need to ... tab in the top navigation. Then choose Communication preference from the Personal Information column to get started. You can also call the HR Service Center for assistance.

When you leave Chevron, your final paycheck is handled consistent with your current payment method while an active employee:

  • Via direct deposit to the bank of record.
  • By physical check to the permanent or mailing address on record in Chevron’s HR system.

To receive any other post-employment payments - such as severance or a prorated CIP payment - you must re-enroll in direct deposit for former employees. You must complete and return this form below prior to leaving Chevron:

It's important to keep Chevron up-to-date should your address change. You can update your address online on the My HR portal while you're still an employee, or on the BenefitConnect website after you've left Chevron. You can also report an address change by calling the HR Service Center.

If you have benefits that are payable should you die, be sure your beneficiary elections are up-to-date prior to leaving Chevron. And if anything changes after you have left Chevron, be sure to return here to update the designations for your plan in the future, also.

Instructions for making adjustments to your federal or state tax withholding, if desired, are available on the U.S. HR website on the intranet. If you no longer have Chevron intranet access, please contact Payroll Operations directly at payroll@chevron.com
