Basic and Supplemental insurance

Basic Life insurance

You are automatically enrolled in basic life insurance at amounts equal to three times your annual base salary, up to $750,000.

GVUL insurance

GVUL insurance is a group life insurance certificate that combines permanent life insurance coverage with the opportunity to contribute additional premium into the GVUL certificate’s tax-deferred investment feature. Additional premium contributions are made on an after-tax basis and any potential earnings accumulate tax-deferred.

You may elect GVUL insurance for yourself and dependents as follows:

  • Supplemental life coverage (for you): 1x – 8x your annual base salary, up to a maximum of $3,000,000.
  • Spouse/domestic partner coverage: $5,000 increments up to $250,000, not to exceed 100% of employee coverage amount.
  • Dependent child coverage: $2,000 increments up to $10,000.

Evidence of insurability

Evidence of Insurability is an application process that helps assess whether you are insurable for higher levels of life insurance. You are guaranteed insurance for the amounts of coverage up to the Evidence of Insurability requirements. You do need to complete the statement to receive amounts greater than the levels specified.

Evidence of Insurability (EOI) is generally required if you make any changes to your life insurance benefit.

You can elect or increase your supplemental life insurance up to $300,000 without submitting EOI when you are initially eligible or during a qualified life event. Dependent life for spouse/domestic partner can be elected or increased without submitting EOI upon initial eligibility or during a qualified life event, as well.

If you are required to provide Evidence of Insurability, MetLife will email you a Statement of Health to complete and return to MetLife for review. Please return it as soon as possible to avoid delays in the decision process.
