Optional Life Insurance

Changes for 2017

Starting January 1, optional life insurance has some new limits.

  • New hires: increased to $250,000 in guaranteed member coverage
  • Family status change: increased to $50,000 in member coverage and $25,000 in spouse coverage guaranteed
  • Member coverage: new plan max of $400,000
  • Spouse coverage: now available in $5,000 increments

What This Means for New Employees

Employees hired in December who want to take advantage of the higher guaranteed amount may wish to wait until January 1 to enroll. New hires who don’t need the higher coverage can enroll right away. Remember, enrollment forms must be submitted within 31 days of the employee’s hire date.
