It's February and love is in the air. Okay, snow and rain are in the air for most of us... but so is love! During this month of love, it is a good idea to make sure that you are providing for those you love the most. One way to do that is to review/update your beneficiaries and Fidelity has a new way to make that really easy for the Mayo Clinic 403(b) plan participants.

It's that simple. On your mobile device, you will get a link back that takes you straight to netbenefits.com. Just sign in, you're there! You can name one or more primary beneficiaries and a variety of secondary beneficiaries. (think: What if my spouse and I die in the same accident?)
Now, go out there and hug someone! (Be appropriate, don't get in trouble!)
