Employee Life Insurance

Eligibility

Active full-time non-student employees are eligible if the most recent appointment period is continuous for a minimum of one year (nine or twelve months as appropriate to the appointment).  Summary Plan Description (and Certificate of Coverage)

Enrollment and Coverage

  • All eligible employees receive free of charge, one times annual base salary up to a maximum of $35,000.

  • Optional Life Insurance and Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) coverage for employee, spouse, dependent children and qualifying Sponsored Adult Dependents is available and paid for by the employee.

    • An employee can purchase life insurance for up to five times their annual earnings (the benefit limit is $450,000).

    • An employee may apply for Dependents Life Insurance in multiples of $10,000, from $10,000 to $100,000, for their spouse or Sponsored Adult Dependent.

    • An employee may elect a Dependents Life Insurance Benefit for their child of $5,000 or $10,000.

Optional Life Insurance is guaranteed if the employee enrolls during the first 30 days following initial eligibility. If an employee rejects the optional insurance during the first 30 days and decides later to apply for coverage, he/she may apply for coverage at any time by completing a Medical History Statement. Approval of the delayed application is not guaranteed and is subject to the approval of the underwriter.

Travel Assistance (Domestic and International)

Standard Insurance, our provider for Group Life Insurance and Optional Voluntary Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D), also provides Travel Assistance to all employees who are covered by the Group Life Insurance. If you, or any member of your immediate family (including children up to age 26), are traveling more than 100 miles from home, including internationally, then FrontierMEDEX can help you with any problems you may encounter. Please see the FrontierMEDEX, Inc. Brochure for details of the services provided and print the card from page seven to carry with you when you travel.

Portability and Conversion

Upon termination of employment, the optional voluntary life insurance may be ported to a term life insurance policy if application is made within 30 days from the date of termination of employment with Auburn University. The basic coverage provided by Auburn University ends upon termination but it may, under certain circumstances, be converted to a whole life policy.
