• Niagara Falls City School District Life Insurance Benefits


    Basic Life Insurance

    As an eligible District employee, you automatically receive Basic Term Life Insurance coverage up to $20,000. Guardian underwrites this life insurance coverage. The District pays the full cost of your Basic Term Life Insurance, which provides a lump sum payment to your designated beneficiary if you die while employed with the District. It is your responsibility to keep your beneficiary designation up to date.


    Voluntary Term Life

    Voluntary Term Life can be purchased in increments of $10,000 with a combined maximum of $100,000 (Basic and Voluntary). If you choose the Voluntary Term life insurance plan, payments are made through your payroll deduction.  Voluntary Term Life Benefits are a taxable benefit.  You may want to purchase the additional life insurance for :

    • a greater level of life insurance for yourself;
    • accident protection for you and/or your dependents;

    **Your voluntary life insurance volume will automatically decrease by 35% at age 70 and by 50% at age 75.

    Please review the 17/18 Voluntary Life Insurance Cost Illustration on how to calculate the cost.
