What is a beneficiary, and who can be one?

A beneficiary is the person or entity you name in a life insurance policy to receive the death benefit. You can name:

  • One person

  • Multiple people, up to ten.

  • The trustee of a trust you’ve set up

  • A charity

  • Your estate

If you don’t name a beneficiary, the death benefit will be paid to your estate.

How do I name my beneficiary or beneficiaries?

You can set your beneficiaries through the YuLife app, and here's how.

  1. Head to the Yu screen and tap on the Group Life icon.

  2. Scroll down and tap 'Add a beneficiary'.

  3. Fill in their name, contact number and let us know your relationship to them.

  4. If you'd like to add more than one beneficiary you can, once you've added the first one you'll get an option to add another.

  5. If you have multiple beneficiaries you can adjust the payout percentage. Just tap on the percentage and type what percent you'd like to allocate for that beneficiary.

You can edit the percentages each beneficiary receives, this can be edited and updated at any time.
