Coverage under the Basic, Supplemental, and Dependents plans ends 31 days after termination of employment. During that period, under The Standard's "portability" option, a person normally can elect to continue the coverage at special group insurance rates. The portable coverage amount for the employee is limited to a minimum of $10,000 and a maximum of the employee's current coverage or $500,000, whichever is less (including Basic and Supplemental Life coverage combined). For Dependents Insurance, the portable amount for a spouse is limited to a minimum of $5,000 and a maximum of $30,000; for a child the minimum is $1,000 and the maximum is $5,000. There is also a "conversion" option under which a person can convert the coverage to an individual "whole life" policy without a medical examination. Contact the Benefits Office for further information.
