Getting married

Congratulations! Whether you’re just starting the planning process or you just got back from your honeymoon, here’s how your marriage affects your Western Union benefits.

Add your new spouse and/or stepchildren to your benefits

  • Review your life insurance coverage and beneficiary information in your Mercer account by going to Okta* and clicking on the Mercer tile.
  • Review your retirement plan and beneficiary information.
  • Go to Okta* and click on the Mercer tile to access your account or contact a Mercer Marketplace 365+ benefits specialist to start the process. Call 866-867-6898 Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mountain time.

Update your personal information

  • Update your name and address, if necessary, at Workday > Personal Information > Change Legal Name and Change Contact Information. – When you update your information in Workday, all other benefit providers will be notified automatically.
  • Update your tax withholdings at Workday > Pay > Actions > Withholding Elections.
  • Update your direct deposit information at Workday > Pay > Actions > Change Payment Elections.

You have 31 days from the date of your marriage to enroll in or make changes to your benefits.
