You can easily remove dependants from your policy by logging into your Ben account and accessing the benefit this applies to.

By scrolling down you should see a list of options under Step 2 - Select Your Coverage. It will show the option you are currently selected based on the type of dependant you have added.

To then remove this dependant to set the policy back to single coverage, you would need to click on the No Family option available. Please make sure you then click ‘Save Changes’ to have your new option saved properly.

This should then take your benefit status to ‘Pending Activation’ in order to have the recent changes updated on your policy.

You may also see your salary contribution decrease to £0.00, as you no longer have active dependants on the policy so the contributions to cover single coverage comes from your employer.

Please note; You can only make these changes during the 30-day window. Outside this window, you will need to reach out to your HR Team, who will need to authorise this change before proceeding.
