Life Insurance


Eligible exempt and union-represented employees are entitled to basic life insurance coverage after completing one full year of continuous state service. Enrollment is automatic. This benefit – equal to your annual earnings rounded to the next highest $1,000 – is provided at no cost to you.


Eligible exempt and union-represented employees have the option of purchasing supplemental life insurance coverage on their date of hire and have 90 days to enroll. You also may enroll during open enrollment. You may purchase coverage for yourself, your spouse, and eligible dependent children younger than age 26. The cost of coverage is at your expense, and you must enroll directly with the carrier.
