If you are like most people, you want to make sure that your loved ones are adequately provided for should something happen to you. The City provides basic term life insurance at no cost to the employee. Additionally, employees, who do not smoke, will also be eligible for an additional $20,000 benefit at no cost. The cost and level of benefits is dependent on the collective bargaining agreement covering the employee, employee status (e.g. full-time, part-time) as well as ordinances, and Civil Service Rules (Municipal Code).
Eligible newly hired employees may purchase voluntary employee life insurance without having to go through Medical Underwriting, also known as Evidence of Insurability (EOI), up to the Guaranteed Issue amount of $50,000. Units can be purchased in increments of $10,000, not to exceed a maximum of $500,000.
Employees must participate in the employee voluntary plan for spouse to participate.
