Life Insurance

UHC logo

Basic Life, Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D), Supplemental Life, and Dependent Life are insured by UnitedHealthcare® (UHC).

The maximum amount of Life Insurance cannot exceed a combined Basic and Supplemental Life amount of $500,000.

What is it?

If you die, life benefits are disbursed to your beneficiaries in a lump sum to help them pay for things like:

  • Burial and final expenses
  • Debts such as student and car loans, and mortgages
  • Future expenses, including college tuition, rent, childcare, retirement savings or even elderly parent care

Added benefits for life insurance participants may help you better plan for today and at life’s turning points with professional assistance, including:

  • An online tool for drafting your will
  • Emergency travel assistance in case an accident or illness occurs while you are away
  • An “Express Pay” service where, under certain conditions, death claim proceeds can be received in as little as 48 hours
  • Funeral planning and cost comparison services
  • Face-to-face access to an attorney or counselor to assist beneficiaries after a death
Why do I need it?

You never know what the future may hold. That’s the whole reason behind life insurance. It can’t fill your shoes, but it can be a comforting source of income and support for your loved ones if you can’t be there. Your needs may change over time, but the need to protect the important things in life won’t. Take the time to help protect what’s taken a lifetime to build.
