You can purchase additional life and AD&D insurance.
Available in increments of $10,000, the maximum coverage level is $300,000 for AD&D insurance.
During annual enrollment (if you were previously enrolled), you may increase your coverage to an amount equal to your base salary without providing evidence of insurability (EOI). Additional coverage may be added pending EOI approval.
New employees may elect up to $300,000 without providing EOI.
Any amount over $200,000 requires EOI.
You can also purchase supplemental life for your spouse.
You may cover your spouse to age 70+
Guaranteed issue of $35,000 for 2021 new employees during open enrollment.
Your combined basic and supplemental coverage must be greater than or equal to two times the spousal benefit.
Increasing or adding new coverage requires evidence of insurability.
If both you and your spouse work for the district, neither of you should enroll in spouse life.
You may cover your children up to age 26. No evidence of insurability is required. Your cost for child life coverage is the same, no matter how many eligible children you insure. If both you and your spouse work for the district, only one parent can elect child coverage.
You may designate a beneficiary online during enrollment or anytime during the year. For information about changing a beneficiary, click here. You may also call Benefits Outlook at 866-222-KISD (5473) and speak to a customer service representative. Your beneficiary designation applies to both the district-provided basic life insurance and the supplemental life, if enrolled. You are automatically the beneficiary if you enroll in spouse and/or child life coverage.
If there is no eligible beneficiary, or if you don’t name one, the death benefit is paid to the first one here that applies:
the insured’s lawful spouse, if living
the insured’s natural or legally adopted child(ren) in equal shares, if living
the insured’s parents in equal shares, if living
the insured’s brothers and sisters in equal shares, if living
the personal representative of the insured’s estate
The Katy ISD Risk Management office handles the claims for all beneficiaries. You can reach them at 281-396-2241.
If you leave the district, your life and AD&D insurance is both convertible and portable. That means you can move your coverage or convert it to a similar policy that you can take with you. For more information about portability and conversion, call Sun Life at 800-247-6875.
For details about benefits and policy exclusions, please refer to the Certificate of Insurance, or ask for one from the Katy ISD Risk Management office.
For any benefits question or concern, including 24/7 Nurse Line access, one call does it all.
