Changes in Life Insurance Coverage Without Experiencing a Qualifying Event

At any time during employment, employees in the following categories may increase or decrease the amount of optional State life insurance coverage.

  • Employee's salary is greater than $50,000.
  • Employee's salary plus State optional life insurance is greater than $50,000.

Decreasing coverage may be done as long as the combined employee's salary and optional coverage does not go below $50,000.

Employees may at any time apply for spouse and child coverage, regardless of the employee's salary, however a Statement of Health is required when adding spouse life.
