Whole Life Insurance
Whole Life Insurance is a policy that is owned by the employee; it can never be cancelled, even if their health changes. Because the employee owns it, they can take it with them if change jobs or retire with no change in the premium. It helps ensure that short- and long-term financial obligations could be taken care of if something unforeseen should happen. This is a great benefit to supplement other life insurance coverages.
Will have the option to purchase the high plan or the low plan, on a guaranteed issue basis (meaning no medical questions asked). This coverage is designed to provide (to the insured person) coverage for certain losses resulting from an accident only (does not provide reimbursement of medical expenses, and does not replace medical insurance).
