When you combine group term life (employer-paid) and voluntary term life (employee-paid) coverage, you offer an even broader range of protection for employees. Best of all, your employees have guaranteed coverage—meaning they can get up to a certain amount of life insurance without answering medical questions.
Our flexible life insurance lets you customize a package just right for your company. Here are a few highlights of our coverage.
Understanding group life insurance terms
Coverage is a set amount. For example, a flat $20,000 is a life insurance benefit of $20,000.
Percentage of salary
Coverage is a percentage of the employee’s salary. For example, an employee has a life insurance policy that is twice (or 200%) her salary. Her salary is $50,000, which means a life insurance benefit of $100,000.
Choose from a flat dollar amount and let employees elect a benefit that fits their needs and their budget by selecting a benefit that is a multiple of that dollar amount. For example, if you select a $20,000 increment, employees could purchase $20,000; $40,000; $60,000, etc.
Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D)1
It’s no surprise. People have accidents every day. And, unfortunately, some of them are severe. Adding Accidental Death & Dismemberment coverage to group term life or voluntary term life provides your employees with even greater protection. A core benefit is paid for the loss of life, hands, feet, thumb and index finger, or vision as the result of an accident.
