That’s right, YOU have life insurance. Why is it important to name a beneficiary? In the event of your death, we must know who you designate to receive the benefit proceeds. If a beneficiary is not named, or hasn’t been updated, the insurance policy or state law decides who receives the funds. We want to make sure the proceeds go to the person, trust or organization of your choice so we encourage you to review you beneficiary now!

*Basic Life Insurance is provided at 1x your annual salary. Coverage amount rounded to the next $1,000. For basic level and additional supplemental live coverage, “salary” means your base pay only (no commissions included in the calculation, and no overtime or bonuses). Coverage for full-time salon leaders is based on an annual amount of $40,000. A beneficiary can be anyone you choose—spouse, friend, parent, child or charitable organization. Call the Benefits Department if you have any questions—1-866-263-8411.
