Family Status Changes

Family Status Changes

Family status changes including marriage, divorce, birth of a baby, adoption, death of a spouse or dependent, etc., must be reported to the Human Resources Department no later than 30 days after the event.  Timely notification ensures:

  • Accurate dollar amounts are withheld from your paycheck for your health, dental, flex spending, and supplemental life insurance plans
  • Prompt enrollment of your new spouse or child to your benefit plans;
  • You are not left financially responsible for medical costs incurred after the family status change as in the case of a divorce;
  • Your name and address records are updated accordingly.

A family status change is also a good time to review your beneficiaries for life insurance, retirement plans, and final paycheck.  The Human Resources Department can assist you with your beneficiary updates for life insurance and final paycheck information.  However, you must update your beneficiaries for retirement plans with either TIAA or the Office of Retirement Services (MPSERS) directly.  If you are enrolled in a voluntary 403(b) retirement plan with any other service provider, you will want to be sure to update your beneficiary information accordingly.

If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Kimberly Hongisto, Benefits Assistant, at x2470 or via e-mail or Kristen Bjorne, Associate Director of HR—Benefits, at x1030 or

Historical Monuments Roundtable: Removal and Reassessment

Historical Monuments Roundtable: Removal and Reassessment

The Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center is hosting a round-table discussion titled, “Historical Monuments: removal and reassessment,” on Thursday, October 12 at 7 p.m.  The roundtable discussion will be held in the Mead Auditorium in the West Science Building on the campus of Northern Michigan University.  Admission is free and open to the public.  

Across the United States there are hundreds of monuments commemorating important events and individuals who helped define our communities, states and nation. Over the past several weeks, there has been much debate regarding the status of many of these monuments, some which honor individuals and causes that many in society find offensive.  This roundtable discussion will place these monuments, and the recent events in Charlottesville and across the country, into historical context and provide a venue for public discourse on this challenging topic.

There will be two participants in the roundtable, both faculty members at Northern Michigan University.  They include Dr. Rebecca Mead, Professor of History and Dr. Martin Reinhardt, Associate Professor of Native American Studies. Daniel Truckey, Director of the Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center, will be the moderator.
