If I am covered by Family coverage as a spouse or child, can I choose the beneficiary?
No. The beneficiary of the spouse and the child coverage will always be the member. If the member were to die before payment could be made, the proceeds of a spouse or child claim would be paid to the member's beneficiary, as designated by the member on the form SGLV 8286.
