Voluntary Supplemental Group Life Insurance
Enrollment Forms due May 31

SCOE has an annual open enrollment period for eligible employees to either enroll in or change their voluntary supplemental group life and accident insurance. This year’s open enrollment period begins May 1 and ends May 31, 2017. Changes become effective on July 1.

During the open enrollment period, employees working at least 20 hours per week can purchase voluntary Term Life and Accident Insurance at very competitive rates. The monthly premium is paid by the employee through payroll deduction. Applicants must provide evidence of good health and may be subject to further medical examinations, such as blood tests. All applications are subject to underwriter approval.

Employees working 20 hours or more per week have $1,000 Accidental Death and Dismemberment coverage paid by SCOE, but may elect to purchase additional coverage, at their own cost, for themselves and their families. Individuals who enroll for additional coverage also have access to CIGNA’s identity theft, will preparation, and health rewards programs.
