What happens when an employee dies?

  • Should a principal member die, their dependants may remain on the Scheme.
  • Fedhealth will require a certified copy of the death certificate together with any other details, for example, new banking details.
  • A letter requesting the continuation of membership, and the nomination of a new principal member must accompany this information.
  • The family should contact the Fedhealth AE or the Customer Contact Centre to request the changes to be made.
  • The new principal member can either remain on Fedhealth as a direct paying member, or through the deceased member’s employer group. The latter depends on the agreement between the new principal member and the deceased‘s employer group.
