You can make changes to your UBC Benefit plan, including: updating your personal information, changing or adding beneficiaries and dependents, and changing the amount of coverage you carry for optional benefits.
To do so, you will need to login to your Workday account.
Updating your personal information
If you move, change your name, or change your bank or account number for direct deposit of your payroll and benefit reimbursements, you will need to update this information through your Workday account.
Adding or removing a spouse or child from your health benefits
To add or remove a dependent from your benefits coverage, you will need to update this information through your Workday account. This can be prompted by entering a common-law relationship, marriage, divorce or separation, the birth or adoption of a child, or the death of a spouse or dependent. For example, some life changes may affect who will be your pension and/or basic life insurance beneficiary.
Updating your beneficiary for your life insurance and changing your optional coverage
Updating your beneficiary
It is important to keep your Life Insurance beneficiary up to date to ensure that the intended person receives the sum of money (benefit) in the event of your death (or in the event of your spouse’s death if you have Spouse Optional Life Insurance). This can be prompted by entering a common-law relationship, marriage, divorce or separation, the birth or adoption of a child, or the death of a spouse or dependent.
You can nominate a beneficiary for Basic Life, and if you are enrolled in it, your Optional Life and Spouse Optional Life Insurance.
To update your beneficiary for your life insurance, please login to your Workday account.
If you are enrolled in Optional AD&D Insurance, the beneficiary of your Optional AD&D Insurance is the same beneficiary as is listed on your Optional Life Insurance. This also applies to the beneficiary named by your spouse if they are covered by Optional Life and Optional AD&D insurance.
Changing your Optional Life Insurance coverage
You can change the coverage amount for your Optional Life Insurance as long as you don’t exceed the maximum allowed on your plan. Changes in insurance coverage must be in blocks of $25,000.
To increase, decrease or waive your Optional Life Insurance coverage or to update your answer to the Tobacco Use question, please login to Workday.
