In addition to basic life insurance, Illinois State University faculty and staff have the option of electing additional life insurance coverage for themselves and their eligible dependents. Life insurance is provided through MetLife.
When a member requests to increase Member Optional Life or requests to add Spouse Life or Child Life coverage, an approved Evidence of Insurability application is required. If approved, coverage will be effective the date the Evidence of Insurability was approved by the life insurance plan administrator.
Evidence of Insurability is not required for newborns who are added within 60 days of birth or for newly-acquired dependents (including a spouse, civil union partner, adopted child, stepchild, child of civil union partner, or child for whom the employee has obtained legal guardianship) added within 60 days of the qualifying event.
