Featured Benefit: Life Insurance and EAP
There's more to an attractive benefits package than just health and dental insurance. Employees also have the option of supplemental life and EAP.
Supplemental Life Insurance
Life Insurance can help provide financial security for your loved ones in the case of your untimely death. Who depends on you and what hardships would they face if you were suddenly gone? These are often uncomfortable questions to answer, but with our Mutual of Omaha LIfe Insurance plan, you know you and your loved ones are covered at an affordable price. All full-time benefits eligible employees automatically receive $10,000 of coverage and access to an EAP at NO COST!
Employees who wish to purchase coverage above the free $10,000 can buy up to $500,000, or 5 times their annual salary, for themselves in increments of $10,000. Spousal coverage is up to 100% of the employee’s Supplemental Coverage amount, up to $500,000 in increments of $5,000. Unmarried, dependent children under the age of 26 are eligible for $10,000 of coverage.
During Open Enrollment, employees can purchase an additional $40,000 of coverage Guaranteed Issue, meaning no Evidience of Insurability is required. All Supplemental Insurance amounts above the Guaranteed Issue can be purchased at any time and are subject to Evidence of Insurability.
