    Updating Beneficiaries

    BeneficiariesIt is important to elect a beneficiary and make sure your beneficiaries are up to date on all your Pima County benefits. Update information by login in the Employee Self-Service (ESS) Portal.
    • It eliminates confusion and it saves time. By having a current beneficiary on all your accounts, you leave not doubt as to what you wish to be done with your hard-earned money or insurance proceeds. In the event of your death and you have not named a beneficiary, this will delay the transfer of funds. If there are final expense to be taken care of, the impact could be significant.
    • It helps ensure the financial wellness of your loved ones. This is particularly important when it comes to life insurance, where the main purpose is to provide money to help cover funeral expenses or to replace income.
