Life Insurance

Financial protection for your survivors in the event of your death is important for your family’s welfare. The University of Alaska provides the opportunity for income protection through the following benefit plans—basic and supplemental life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment protection.

You may only add or increase life insurance coverage as a new employee, during open enrollment or after a major life event. You may drop or reduce coverage at any time. Check current life insurance rates. A summary of the different types of insurance follows.
