Enrollment ends in two weeks for Colonial Life’s term- and whole-life policies
By Michael Pramik, Ohio Public Employees Retirement System
Sept. 7, 2023 – OPERS members have just two weeks to apply for term- and whole-life policies this year through Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co.
It’s the sixth-consecutive year that the insurer is offering the policies to active members, their spouses and children, and the coverage may be extended to grandchildren. The voluntary insurance would be in addition to life insurance that members’ employers might offer, and OPERS members would bear the cost.
The policies will be guaranteed issue, within certain limits, and this year’s open enrollment period ends Sept. 22.
OPERS members can enroll in a policy only through a session with a licensed benefits counselor – either through a virtual meeting or over the phone. The virtual enrollment option allows members the flexibility of connecting with their benefit counselor via conference call, video chat or screen-share, with one click of a link.
There is a link to enroll in this Colonial Life digital postcard. You also can listen to a recorded webinar that provides additional details on the 2023 open enrollment period and the voluntary benefits that are available.
