Employee Basic Life Insurance
Life insurance is a key element in most group insurance programs with the cost either paid entirely by the employer or shared between employer and employees.
Coverage may be a multiple of earnings, or a flat amount. Most often, the insurance company will provide an amount of coverage without evidence of insurability. The larger the group, the greater the amount of coverage that will be issued without evidence of insurability.
Most plans provide a conversion option whereby the plan member, on termination of employment, may convert all or part of his coverage to a personal plan without evidence of insurability. This is a very attractive feature for a person who could not get insurance on an individual basis.
In case of disability, coverage will remain in effect without payment of premium.
Dependant Life Insurance
Generally, this benefit automatically provides coverage for the employee’s spouse and child(ren). The spouse is often covered for a flat amount of $10,000 and each child for $5,000.
Optional Life Insurance
An attractive provision being added to current plans these days is an option for a plan member to purchase additional amounts of life insurance for him/herself or his/her dependant life at competitive rates. Coverage is usually sold in units of $25,000. The employee pays the entire premium via payroll deduction.
