Life Insurance

  • AACPS Provides life insurance and accidental death insurance at no cost to employees. The volume of coverage is in accordance with the applicable Negotiated Agreement or Terms of Employment.

    New hires may purchase additional life insurance coverage up to $100,000 without Evidence of Insurability (EOI) during your first 31 days of employment.  Amounts over $100,000 will require an EOI. 

    Employees may also purchase life insurance for a spouse ($10,000) or child/ren ($2,000).

    Can I change my life insurance and retirement beneficiaries at any time?

    Yes, you can change your beneficiaries at any time during the year. Marriage, divorce, death, birth are important events that can trigger such a change. Remember to keep your beneficiaries updated. The MetLife Beneficiary Designation Form and the State Retirement Agency Form may be found on the forms page.

    Voluntary life insurance coverage can be changed mid-year within 31 days of a qualifying lifestyle change with an Evidence of Insurability.

    Who does my family notify to collect life insurance benefits upon my death?

    Your family will need to contact the HR/Benefits Office at (410)-222-5221/5219. A certified copy of the death certificate will be needed in order to submit a claim form for life insurance benefits.
