Life Insurance and AD&D Coverage

Employer-Paid Life Insurance:

Benefits-eligible employees are automatically enrolled by the district in Basic Term Life and AD&D (Accidental Death & Dismemberment) insurance coverage, which is underwritten by Hartford Life Insurance and provided at district expense. The death benefit is equal to your annual salary and increases to twice your annual salary should you die in an accident. Employees are strongly encouraged to contact Hartford using their BenSelect online platform (see How to Access Life Insurance Coverage Online below) to establish a beneficiary on their policy once their health insurance benefits are active.  Below is the certificate of coverage and policy summary:
