SUPPLEMENTAL TERM LIFE INSURANCE AND ACCIDENTAL DEATH AND DISMEMBERMENT
- Employee Only Supplemental Life: The College of Central Florida offers employee-only supplemental term life insurance through The Standard at an additional cost to the employee. This may be purchased in increments of 1, 2, or 3 times your annual salary rounded to the next $1,000.
- Dependent Supplemental Life for Spouse and Children – NEW Benefit effective January 2020

ENROLLMENT DETAILS FOR SUPPLEMENTAL LIFE INSURANCE
Newly hired employees may enroll during the first 30 days of employment and qualify for this coverage as a guaranteed issue up to $200,000 of coverage (medical underwriting required for amounts above 200K). Existing employees may enroll at any time, however, an Evidence of Insurability form will be required and coverage is not guaranteed. Eligibility will be determined by the insurance company.
For the 2019 Open Enrollment Period (2020 Plan Year): The 2019 Open Enrollment period (2020 benefits plan year) will allow employees to add new supplemental life insurance or increase existing levels (up to $200K) at guaranteed issue – no medical underwriting or Evidence of Insurability form required.
