*BENEFICIARIES*

It has come to our attention that when your retirement was switched over to John Hancock, your beneficiary information was not forwarded so you will have to redo that info.  Be sure that if you have gotten married, divorced, re-married, spouse has passed, etc. that you update your beneficiaries.  When paying out the death benefit, or the International goes to pay out the death benefit, we/they don't have an updated beneficiary and the death benefit has to be paid to who you have as your beneficiary.
