Life Insurance

Basic Life Insurance

The University provides each full-time staff and full-time faculty member with a life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment benefit.

  • Non-exempt staff -- $50,000
  • Paraprofessional and Exempt staff -- $100,000

Employees age 70 and above receive an automatic reduction to $10,000 of coverage.

Coverage begins on the first day of the first full month of employment.

Voluntary Supplemental Life Insurance

Voluntary supplemental life insurance is also available for full-time employees and family members through payroll deductions. More information on this plan is contained in the voluntary supplemental plan brochure.

Full-time staff and faculty may apply for voluntary life insurance upon hire and initial eligibility for benefits, mid-year qualifying life event or during annual open enrollment (November).  Please note our life insurance carrier, CIGNA, may require medical evidence of insurability prior to approving your application for voluntary life insurance.

Please contact the Office of Human Resources for additional information or to apply for this benefit.

Beneficiary Designation

A current completed beneficiary form should be on file in the Office of Human Resources.  You may change your beneficiary designation at any time.
