Life Insurance Plans

Financial security and the peace of mind that loved one’s financial health is protected is available through MCC’s Life Insurance benefits. MCC offers two different Unum life insurance plans. The basic life is an employer paid plan while the optional life plan allows employees to purchase life insurance through payroll deduction. Employers may choose to offer basic life and/or the option life plan.

Basic Life Insurance with AD&D

The Basic Employer-Paid Life Insurance with Accidental Death and Dismember is employee benefit plan whereby the employer offers one of three levels of coverage equal to 1, 1.5 or 2 times one year’s base annual earnings. Maximum benefit amount is $500,000. Coverage is portable if coverage ends due to termination of employment or reduction in hours.

Optional Life Insurance

Optional Life is an employee paid benefit. It provides employees to purchase affordable term life insurance for themselves and dependent children through payroll deduction. The optional life plan is a fully insured term life plan through Unum.

Optional Life amounts are $10,000, $25,000, $50,000 and $100,000 for employee coverage and $10,000 on children. Employee optional life cost varies based on amount selected and age of employee. There is not required proof of good health when initially offered optional life coverage. Late enrollment requires evidence of insurability.
