Group life insurance

Can your loved ones afford to lose your income?

You work hard to protect the people you care about, but some hardships can’t be predicted.

With group life insurance, you can help ensure your loved ones have the financial protection they need if you pass away. And by enrolling in this valuable insurance at work, you can take advantage of typically lower costs and a simplified process.


How does it work?

You can purchase group life insurance when you join your company or during your annual open enrollment. You’ll select the amount of coverage you want and name the beneficiaries of your policy.

If you die while your policy is in effect, your beneficiaries will receive a lump-sum payment of your coverage amount.

Why do I need it?

If you suddenly pass away, the loss of your income can make a difficult situation for those you leave behind even worse.

Life insurance can help ensure they can continue to make student loan, car or mortgage payments, save for college or invest in their financial future.

Why buy life insurance at work?

Group life insurance is a convenient and cost-effective way to protect your loved ones. Whether it’s your main source of life insurance or a supplement to your personal or employer-sponsored life insurance, group life offers several advantages.
