Life Insurance

Group Life Insurance

Cigna is the carrier for the University's Group Life Insurance coverage.
For information regarding life insurance benefits please contact Human Resources.

The University offers a life insurance program with coverage that is directly related to your salary. This helps to protect the value of your insurance from erosion due to inflation.

Newly hired employees may be eligible immediately upon employment. Life insurance coverage is not automatic if you do not enroll within thirty-one days of your eligibility for insurance. After this thirty-one day period, the insurance company has the option of denying coverage based upon their review of your health history.

In addition to the basic group life insurance benefit, eligible employees may purchase additional life insurance for themselves, their spouse or domestic partner and their dependent children.

Opportunity to purchase occurs annually during Open Enrollment.
