Life Insurance & Disability Benefits

Life Insurance Plan 

Coverage under the Basic Life Insurance Plan and/or the Supplemental Life Insurance Plan (if enrolled) ends on your date of retirement. You will have 31 days in which you may convert all or a portion of the value of your Basic Life Insurance Plan or Supplemental Life Insurance Plan (if enrolled) to an individual whole life insurance policy without providing medical evidence of insurability. The conversion form can be found in your retirement folder, which you can obtain from the Office of Human Resources.
 
You can call Prudential Life Insurance at (877) 889-2070 for plan and rate information.
 
Coverage under the Accidental Death & Dismemberment portion of the plan ends on your retirement date. You cannot convert this coverage to an individual policy.
