ACTIVE EMPLOYEES
UAW SAVINGS PLAN BENEFICIARY

Beginning May 2, 2019, Beneficiary assignments will be handled at Merrill Lynch. All UAWSP beneficiary functionality will be turned off at Benefit Connect as of that date for the UAWSP (401(k)) only. All existing beneficiaries will be directly converted from Benefit Connect to Merrill Lynch.

This new Merrill Lynch service will enable participants direct access to their UAWSP beneficiary via Merrill Lynch. This will be seen by the participant every time they log into their UAWSP account via the web or mobile. Participants quarterly Merrill Lynch statements will also list their existing beneficiary on file for the UAWSP or indicate if there is NOT one set up.

This should greatly reduce the number of participants who do not set up a beneficiary for their UAWSP account.
