MetLife Life Insurance
Term Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) Insurance
The District provides employees with basic group term life and AD&D insurance in the amount of one times your annual salary at no cost to you. An additional one times your annual salary in Board-paid life insurance is provided to employees whose pay is based on 10+ years experience.
Note that Professional Support employees earning less than $20,000 per year receive benefits based on the previously negotiated contract — see attached.
Optional (Supplemental) Life Insurance
You can elect an additional one or two times annual salary in term life and AD&D insurance as a new employee without having to provide evidence of insurability (EOI). If you decide to increase your Optional Life Insurance during Open Enrollment you must submit an EOI form. MetLife
will send you a pre-filled form once Open Enrollment ends for you to answer and return. MetLife will inform you if your increase has been approved.
Special Computation for Bus Drivers:
There is a special computation for bus drivers based on actual time worked during the previous two pay periods, plus credit for extended routes. For example, your salary for a five-hour guarantee route bid is $15,000. If you win a bid for an extended route/field trip that pays an additional $15,000, your life insurance will be based on a $30,000 annual salary.
