ABOUT GROUP LIFE INSURANCE

Most members of the New Jersey State-administered retirement systems are covered by group life insurance benefits.

AS AN ACTIVE EMPLOYEE — Group life insurance coverage may be of one or two types:

  • Noncontributory Group Life Insurance is provided by the employer through the retirement system where there is no cost to the member for coverage;

  • Contributory Group Life Insurance is insurance coverage for which the member pays all or part of the premium.

    For details, see the fact sheets listed below.

AT RETIREMENT — Group life insurance benefits are reduced for most members. For details, see the fact sheets listed below.

AT RETIREMENT OR UPON TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT — Group life insurance conversion privileges are available. For details, see the conversion information listed below.

CONVERSION OF GROUP LIFE INSURANCE

If you are covered by group life insurance while employed, the coverage ends 31 days after you
cease employment (whether for reason of retirement, termination of employment, or leave of absence without pay). Most members have the option to convert group life insurance coverage to an individual policy with the Prudential Insurance Company before coverage would otherwise end. See the following fact sheet for details.
