New life insurance carrier and premium reductions

We are pleased to announce that effective January 1, 2023, Standard Insurance Company will become the University’s new carrier for Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) coverage. This is a seamless change in carrier only – your current life and AD&D coverage amounts for you and your dependents will remain unchanged.

Although your coverage will not change, your premiums will decrease.  New, reduced premiums will be reflected on your January 20th paycheck.

The Standard has been our carrier for disability insurance for many years and has been a leader in the industry for over 100 years.  The Standard’s focused expertise, exemplary customer service, solid financial reputation and commitment to excellence make it an excellent match for the University, and we are pleased to add this additional coverage with them.
