The spouse's amount of coverage is equal to 50% of your supplemental amount, up to $100,000.


Select the amount of coverage that best fits your needs. Each child will be covered for the amount selected at one low monthly cost, regardless of the number of eligible children.

Your Basic and Supplemental Group Term Life coverages include:

Extended Insurance Benefit

Your term life coverage may continue to age 70 at no cost to you if you become totally disabled prior to age 60, subject to the requirements of this benefit.

Accelerated Death Benefit

If you are diagnosed with a Terminal Condition which with reasonable medical certainty will result in your death within 6 months, you may choose to accelerate up to 50% of your term life death benefit, up to $100,000. An administrative fee of $150.00 and a 6 month interest rate discount based on an annual interest rate of 8% will be deducted from the payment. The amount of the accelerated payment will reduce the death benefit payable under the term life coverage by the amount of the requested payment. The monthly premium due for the remaining amount will be the same as if the accelerated payment had not been made, DISCLOSURE: The Accelerated Benefit offered under this group policy/certificate is intended to qualify for favorable tax treatment under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. If the Accelerated Benefit qualifies for such favorable tax treatment,

the benefits will be excludable from your income and not subject to federal taxation. Tax laws relating to Accelerated Benefits are complex. You are advised under which you could receive the Accelerated Benefit excludable from income under federal law.

Receipt of an Accelerated Benefit payment may affect your, your spouse, or your family's eligibility for public assistance programs such as medical assistance (Medicaid), Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC), supplemental social security income (SSI) and drug assistance programs. You are advised to consult with a qualified tax advisor and with social service agencies concerning how receipt of such a payment will affect your, your spouse, or your family's eligibility for public assistance.
