Policy Statement

The University provides several different life insurance options for full time employees under the flexible benefits plan. The options vary by benefit level.

Full-time employees are eligible for life insurance on the first of the month following sixty days of service. The University pays the full premium for the option that provides coverage equal to the base salary.

An employee who resigns or retires may convert the group insurance to an individual policy within thirty-one days following termination of insurance.

Spouse and dependent insurance is also available. Several options are provided subject to Pennsylvania law. The employee pays the full premium.


Brochures regarding this benefit are available in the Human Resources Department. Employees receive separate brochures upon eligibility.
