Benefit Changes
Divorce, Dissolution or Annulment of Marriage

If you designate your spouse as your beneficiary under the Life with 50% to Surviving Spouse Plan (Plan A), the Life with Selected % to Survivor Plan (Plan C), or the Life with 100% to Survivor Plan (Plan D), and a divorce, dissolution, or annulment occurs after your retirement, you may elect to be paid under the Single Life Benefit (Plan B) with the written consent of your former spouse or a court order.

The change to Plan B will be effective the first of the month following our receipt of the properly completed Benefit Pop Up Request form. If, after you have changed to Plan B, you later remarry, your benefit may be recalculated under Plan A, C, or D to provide for your new spouse as set forth above.

If you designate your spouse as a beneficiary under the Life with Multiple Survivors Plan (Plan F), and a divorce, dissolution, or annulment occurs after your retirement, you may remove your former spouse as beneficiary with the written consent of your former spouse or a court order.

You will remain under Plan F. Your benefit will be recalculated to reallocate to you the amount you previously allocated to your former spouse upon our receipt of your properly completed Benefit Pop Up Request form and, if necessary, the appropriate court order.

There will be no change in the benefit allocation for the other beneficiaries. The change in your benefit will be effective the first of the month following our receipt of your properly completed Benefit Pop Up Request form and, if necessary the appropriate court order.

If you later remarry, your benefit may be recalculated under this plan to provide for your new spouse, provided any specified portion for another former spouse remains unchanged. You will have one year from the date of your marriage to change your benefit to provide for your new spouse.
