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 appropriate Texas A&M Benefits office is necessary for 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 Liaison or family member should contact the applicable office 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.
