To qualify for the life insurance benefit, you must be a Plan I participant with earned eligibility or have senior performers coverage at the time of your death. The life insurance benefit is not available if you are covered under Plan II earned eligibility or COBRA, nor is it available to dependents.
If a participant with earned eligibility dies during the period between the base earnings period and the benefit period, the life insurance benefit will be payable (but not accidental death and dismemberment benefits).
Life insurance benefit
The life insurance benefit amount depends on the type of coverage you have:
- Plan I earned eligibility – $10,000
- Senior performers – $ 5,000
To qualify for AD&D benefits, you must be a Plan I or Plan II participant with earned eligibility at the time of your loss. Your AD&D coverage ends when you lose earned eligibility. AD&D benefits are not available if you have COBRA or senior performers coverage, nor are these benefits available to dependents.
