Death of an Employee, Retiree or Dependent

Reporting a Death

It is important to notify Human Resources promptly when a death occurs of a Texas A&M University employee, retiree, surviving spouse or covered dependent.  This notice to the Texas A&M Benefits office is necessary for the timely processing of benefits coverage changes, life insurance claims, and offers of coverage continuation to survivors, when applicable.

To report a death, the departmental HR Generalist or family member should contact the Texas A&M Benefits office by email at or by phone at (979) 862-1718 with the deceased person's name, UIN, date of death, and contact person's phone number and email address.  A phone meeting or virtual appointment may be requested to discuss documentation needed, available continuation options as applicable, and other issues.
