PLAN FEATURES

Pay Less If You’re a Qualified Non-tobacco user
Non-tobacco users meeting the highest underwriting standards may qualify for the Plan’s lowest rates.

Continuing Insurance After the 10–Year Term Ends
Premiums are designed to remain level for the first 10 years of coverage*. At the end of the 10–year period, if you still meet the requirements of eligibility, you may apply for re-entry. A written application and proof of good health satisfactory to ReliaStar Life is required.

Or you or your dependent can be automatically transferred to group annual renewable term life coverage with attained age rates, without proof of good health and subject to all terms and eligibility requirements of the group policy. The initial premium rate will be based on the Covered Person’s age at the time of transfer.
 


Keep Your Cost Manageable
Rates have been provided on a monthly basis per $1,000 of coverage to make it easier for you to compare this Plan with other insurance plans on the market today. Four modes of payment are available to suit your budget: quarterly billing, semiannual billing or annual billing; and our Monthly Pre–Authorized Check Payment Plan.

Your Cost
The cost of this life insurance is based upon the member/employee and spouse’s gender, amount of insurance requested, usage of tobacco/nicotine products and attained age on the date coverage is issued. Premium contributions will vary depending upon the options chosen.

Only non-tobacco users meeting the highest underwriting standards will qualify for "Preferred" rates. (Note: tobacco users may qualify for "Tobacco"). Upon approval of your application by the insurer, you will be notified of the rate classification for each approved person.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Accelerated Life Benefit This important plan option gives you the ability to collect part of your HSBA Level Term Life benefits before your death if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness. If your doctor diagnoses you with a life expectancy of 6 months or less, you can collect up to 50 percent of your benefits (or $100,000, whichever is less) before you die—to use however you wish.

(Note: A doctor–certified terminal illness means an illness from which no recovery is expected, that results in a life expectancy of 6 months or less.) You must have at least $10,000 in Life Insurance coverage in force to qualify for this benefit.
 

This money can be used to help cover high prescription drug costs…medical bills…outstanding debts…to help pay for experimental treatments…the cost of modifications to your home…or for a family vacation—the choice is yours.
 

Receipt of accelerated benefit may be taxable, or may adversely affect your eligibility for Medicaid or other government benefits. You should consult your personal tax advisor to assess the impact of this benefit.

Waiver of Premium
If you become totally disabled, as defined in the certificate, for 6 months or longer before age 60 your coverage and benefits will continue at no cost to you—for as long as you’re disabled or until you reach age 75 (or the date of retirement for employees).

Exclusions
You’re covered 365 days a year, wherever you are. The only exclusion is suicide within the first two years of the date your insurance or increase in insurance starts. The Accelerated Life Benefit is subject to additional exclusions.
 

You Name Your Beneficiary
You may name anyone you wish as the beneficiary for this coverage, and you may change the beneficiary by contacting the Insurance Administrator in writing and advising them of the change.

You may also choose to name a beneficiary that you cannot change without his or her consent. This is an irrevocable beneficiary.

ADDITIONAL PLAN PROVISIONS

  • You apply for insurance, if proof of good health is not required.


When Coverage Ends

As long as you remain an active member/employee of HSBA, pay your premium when due, and the group policy remains in force, you can keep your coverage. Your amount of insurance will not decrease due to age during a level term rate period.
 

For members/employees or spouses who are age 60 or under at the end of a level term period, coverage will not reduce until age 70. Coverage will reduce to 50% at age 70 and will terminate at age 75.

This information is only a brief description of the principal provisions and features of the Plan. The complete terms and conditions are set forth in the group certificate issued by ReliaStar Life.

PLEASE KEEP FOR YOUR RECORDS
All members/employees and spouses must complete an application form for any new coverage or to increase coverage (including dependent coverage) or to begin an initial or subsequent 10–year Level Term Rate Period when proof of good health is required. Some applicants may be required to have a medical exam in order to apply for coverage. For more information on medical requirements, please contact your Plan Administrator. If there is an increase in the amount of your insurance, the increase will take effect on the first day of the month on or next following the date of the increase. If you are in a Level Term Rate Period, premiums for the increased amount of insurance will be based on your attained age on the effective date of the increase. Your HSBA Level Term Life Plan will start on the first day of the month after your application has been approved and your first premium has been paid.
