Beneficiary Designation
As long as you maintain an account in the Plan, you should have a current beneficiary designation. This may be done online by choosing "Your Profile" at Fidelity NetBenefits or www.401k.com. If you do not have online access, you may contact Fidelity's RSP Service Center at 877-PGE-401K (877-743-4015) to request a beneficiary designation form.
If you do not designate a beneficiary, your default beneficiary will be your spouse if you are married, or your estate if you are not married. If you are married and designate anyone other than your spouse as a beneficiary, you must submit notarized evidence of spousal consent. You should review your beneficiary designations regularly, and any time your circumstances change (such as marriage, divorce, or birth or adoption of a child). You may change your beneficiary designation at any time.
If you're in a domestic partnership registered with the California Secretary of State, the plan administrator will recognize your domestic partner as your spouse to the extent the plan administrator concludes it's appropriate to do so under applicable IRS and Department of Labor guidance.
