Mass Mutual Whole Life Insurance Policy

The County provides benefits-eligible employees with $15,000 term insurance. Group optional term insurance can be purchased. However, the premiums on this policy increase as you grow older.

Whole Life policies protect over an employee's entire lifetime and premiums are fixed an cannot increase due to age or change in health condition as long as you pay your premiums. Whole life policies may also pay dividends that can be used to purchase additional coverage and help build cash value. It is portable, so you can take it with you even if you leave the County. You can also access any available cash value for any reasons. The death benefit is generally tax-free and the cash values that build are tax deferred. If you add additional amounts of life insurance, the premium for that portion of the additional amount may increase at the time. The Mass Mutual policy also contains a Terminal Illness provision which allows advances or acceleration of a portion of the death benefit if diagnosed with a terminal illness expected to result in death within 12 months. This can assist with end of life medical expenses which may not be covered by health insurance.
