October 1, 2013 Insurance Carrier Change

Effective October 1, 2013, the University as selected Great West Life to be the continued carrier of choice for our Health and Dental benefits and the new carrier for the Basic Life, Optional Life, Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) and Long Term Disability (LTD) insurances.  The decision to move these insurance benefits to Great West Life is based primarily on improved service and administration of the benefit plans, as well as rate guarantees that reduce life insurance premiums and limit the increase for the LTD premiums. 

As a result of this change, in addition to premium changes, there will be a few minor changes to our current Life and LTD contracts.  Please find below links to information regards these changes:

If you have any questions regarding the above change please do not hesitate to contact your Benefit Specialist:
