Voluntary Life Insurance and Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) Coverage
Providing economic security for your family if you die, become disabled, or experience an injury or illness is a major consideration in personal financial planning. West Valley-Mission Community College District allows you the ability to purchase coverage for yourself and your dependents. You may purchase coverage through payroll deductions. You may enroll in amounts up to the guarantee issue amount during your new hire window without completing a Statement of Health (SOH). Any election above the guarantee issue amount or outside your new hire window will require a Statement of Health. The only exception to this is that if you are already enrolled, you may increase your coverage levels by one increment (up to the guarantee issue amount), at open enrollment without a Statement of Health. Elections requiring a Statement of Health require approval from MetLife before being issued.
