Loss of a Loved One
Losing a loved one can be overwhelming. Here’s a checklist of the benefit changes you might want to consider and some other resources to help you through the process.
Changes and elections for most of the VMware benefit plans are made at annual enrollment; however, the loss of a loved one is considered a qualified life event. You must make changes within 30 days of the date of the qualified life event. You are eligible to make the following changes:
Updating Your Personal Information
- To update your preferred name, emergency contact and/or home address, log into Workday [VMware network access required].
- For more information and detailed instructions, please visit the Workday page [VMware network access required] on VMware Source.
- If you need to update your marital status and/or your legal name, you will need to contact HR Source [VMware network access required].
Planning time away from work to grieve after the loss of a loved one is an important consideration. Be sure to review the Bereavement Leave eligibility requirements.
- Condolence Allowance
You will receive RMB 1,000 for an immediate family member pass away by contacting HR Source [VMware network access required]. Immediate family members include parents, parents in law, spouse, children and siblings. The cash will be paid to you via payroll, and individual income tax will be withheld and remitted by VMware.
