beneficiary designations

A beneficiary is a person or trust that you designate to receive certain benefits upon your death. Just as it’s important to have an estate plan to distribute your property and financial assets, it’s also important to designate beneficiaries for your Chevron benefits. You may already have beneficiaries on file, but have you reviewed them recently to be sure they’re still accurate? It’s a good idea to review your beneficiaries at least once a year. However, you should also review and update whenever you:

  • Experience a major life event such as a birth, marriage, dissolution of marriage or domestic partnership, or death in the family.
  • Update your will or estate plan.
  • Rollover a 401(k) or Individual Retirement Account (IRA).

Please note that you may not be participating in or be eligible for all the Chevron plans and programs discussed on this page.

You can designate beneficiaries for payment of final pay and vacation. You cannot designate a trust for payment of your final pay and vacation.

If you are eligible for and choose to participate in Group Critical Illness Insurance, you must designate your beneficiaries directly with Aflac on the Aflac Beneficiary Designation Form.
If you are eligible for and choose to participate in Group Hospital Indemnity Insurance, you must designate your beneficiaries directly with Aflac on the Aflac Beneficiary Designation Form.

If you are eligible for and choose to open and contribute to the BenefitWallet health savings account (HSA) with payroll deductions, you must designate your beneficiaries directly with BenefitWallet.
