Basic Group Life Insurance

Description of Benefit

See Group Life Insurance Program
No accidental death and dismemberment benefits are payable if death results from an act of war.

Eligibility for Benefit

A member on military leave without pay may continue basic group life insurance coverage for the duration of the leave period as long as the premiums are paid. If the member pays the employee premium, the employer will collect the premium and remit it to VRS on the member's behalf. If the employer pays the premium, the employer will remit the premium to VRS. If a member does not pay the required premium, coverage ceases during the leave period. Coverage is reinstated once the employee returns to a covered position.

Benefits upon Return to VRS Employment

Benefits and payment methods continue as before leave without pay (LWOP).
