Life insurance needs vary by individual circumstances – that's why Cigna offers flexible, personalized plans that meet employees' different life stages. When you're building a comprehensive benefits strategy, life insurance helps employees stay financially protected and better prepared. We help maximize employee benefit payments through our automatic claims submission for employees who also have Cigna's Accidental Injury, Critical Illness or Hospital Care coverage. We'll automatically file their accidental injury, critical illness or hospital care claim for them based on their Cigna life claim data.
Group Life Insurance Policy Options
- Term Life plans are tailored to meet employers’ needs with a choice of basic (employer-paid) or voluntary (employee-paid) Term Life coverage, or a combination of the two.
- Group Universal Life (GUL) insurance combines guaranteed amounts of life insurance with a cash accumulation fund that earns tax-deferred interest at rates typically higher than lending institutions.1
