 Nokia's has a web site BenefitAnswersPlus* that says:

"The death of your spouse or your covered child is a qualified change in status. The death of your domestic partner or your partner's child is also considered a change in status. Therefore, you can make certain changes to your health and insurance coverage. The coverage changes must be consistent with your change in status. Nokia offers a short checklist you can download.

To make changes to your current coverage, you must speak with a Benefits Center Representative, by calling the Nokia Benefits Resource Center at
between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Eastern time, Monday through Friday."
