State Basic Life
If you are an eligible employee and elect to participate in the State Health Plan, you will be covered at no cost for life insurance coverage in the sum of $3,000 and $3,000 accidental death and dismemberment if you are under the age of 70. For eligible employees age 70 or older, the Basic Life Insurance program provides $1,500 life insurance. Enrollment in the program is automatic with enrollment in the state health insurance program for active employees.
When your health coverage as an active employee is terminated, you will no longer be eligible for Basic Life coverage. However, you will be allowed to convert your coverage. To do so, you must complete and submit a conversion form to MetLife within 31 days after your Basic Life coverage ends.
