Notifying us of a dependent death

It can be very difficult to know what steps to take after losing a loved one. If an employee loses a spouse, domestic partner or child who was covered on any health or insurance plans through Liberty Mutual or was a beneficiary of an employee’s life insurance, below is a checklist to help keep a terrible event from becoming even more painful:


Employee notifies manager or calls the HR Support Center at 1-877-564-4772

The HR Support Center will work with the employee and their manager to explain the bereavement leave policy and prepare for bereavement leave.

Call the Liberty Benefits Center (or the HR Support Center can transfer you) at 1-800-758-4460

On that call, the employee will need to select the “Report a Death” prompt. A condolence letter will be sent with information about any applicable benefit changes, spouse or dependent life insurance payouts and Ayco Survivor Support.

Review benefits

Employees have 30 days from the date of death to make changes to their benefits. If an employee doesn’t make changes within 30 days, they’ll have to wait until the next Annual Enrollment period or until they have another qualified status change. They can make eligible changes to health and income protection plans by visiting BenefitConnect or calling the Liberty Benefits Center at 1-800-758-4460.

Update beneficiaries

If applicable, review and update beneficiary designations for retirement, life and AD&D insurance benefits. Log into the Portal for a full list of direct links to the various beneficiary designations.

Change income tax withholding choice

If an employee’s spouse has passed away, they might want to make sure their tax withholding and exemptions are up-to-date. Visit People at Liberty to update tax elections.

Create or update wills, trusts and related documents

Employees must make sure your important legal documents are up-to-date so they have a plan in place to provide for loved ones. They have access to self-help resources for financial documents as well as a no-cost 30 minute legal consultation through the Work Life Solutions (EAP) Plan. Log into the Portal to view the Work Life Solutions website and phone number.

Find support

Losing a loved one is an incredibly painful and life-changing event that comes with a lot of challenges. The Work Life Solutions (EAP) Plan provides resources, immediate advice over the phone and referrals to online and face-to-face counseling. Employees receive up to 10 free visits per family member, per issue, each year. Log into the Portal to view the Work Life Solutions website and phone number.
