Eligibility

All regular full-time or regular part-time employees are eligible; however benefit reductions apply to employees age 65 or older. Dependents are not covered.

Evidence of Insurability (EOI)

Any time an employee elects an amount over $200,000 of supplemental life insurance they must submit the EOI form. For example, if you are changing from $50,000 to $300,000, or going from $250,000 to $400,000, you must submit evidence of insurability.

Cost

Rates are based upon employee age as of July 1 of each year. Check current life insurance rates or please consult with your regional human resources office. Payments are made through biweekly payroll deductions.

You may enroll within 30 days of the date of your employment, during open enrollment, or after a major life event. If you elect to have more than $200,000 of supplemental life insurance you must complete the Evidence of Insurability Form.  If you elect to have less than $200,000 of supplemental life insurance, you do not need to submit evidence of insurability.
