Standard Voluntary Additional Supplemental Life Insurance

If you wish to supplement the $50,000 of life insurance provided by the University, you may purchase additional insurance of up to 5x your annual earnings, up to a maximum of $500,000, rounded up to the nearest $10,000 increment. The maximum amount you may purchase without evidence of insurability is $150,000, also referred to as the ‘guarantee issue amount’. If you desire an amount greater than the $150,000, you will be required to complete the Medical History Statement and submit it to our office either via email or fax.

Please note: This benefit is only available without evidence of insurability at initial enrollment. If at a later date you wish to enroll in this benefit, or purchase additional insurance, you will need to complete the Medical History Statement.

If you would like to purchase this benefit for your spouse as well, you may do so by calling our office to complete the forms. The purchase increments are $10,000 with a maximum of $250,000 and a guaranteed issue amount of $30,000 without health history. This must also be purchased at your initial enrollment.

The Enrollment Form displays the amount of monthly premium associated with each multiple of annual salary. Once you choose your desired amount, please click Yes in the appropriate space indicating you do wish to purchase that amount of insurance.
