No-cost benefits

The Katy ISD benefits package provides basic life insurance and an employee assistance program (EAP) for all employees who are eligible for benefits, regardless of whether you choose to enroll in the medical or other available benefits plans. 

Basic life insurance

The district automatically provides $20,000 in basic life insurance and $20,000 in AD&D insurance if you’re eligible for benefits. Assistant principals and other administrators may be eligible for more. This is term life insurance. Sun Life is the provider for this coverage.

Life insurance benefits pay your beneficiary if you die while covered, subject to policy exclusions. AD&D insurance benefits pay you or your beneficiary if you have a covered loss as the direct result of an accident. 

 You can add supplemental coverage for yourself, your spouse or your children.
