Voluntary Life Coverage is available during the first 31 days of employment. The employee pays the full premium for this life coverage. Life coverage in $10,000 increments may be purchased for the employee, spouse or same-sex domestic partner. Also, coverage is available for dependent children in the amounts of $2,000; $5,000; or $10,000. Coverage is available within the first 31 days up to the guarantee issue amount of $175,000 for the employee and $50,000 for the spouse or same-sex domestic partner. If electing coverage for spouse and/or children, the employee must elect the same amount or more of employee coverage. If you want more than the guarantee issue amounts for the employee or spouse, or if you do not apply for coverage until after the first 31 days of employment, the application will be medically underwritten and can be denied if health problems exist.
