Purchasing Optional Life Insurance Plans
Guaranteed issue! During this special open enrollment, you are able to purchase optional term life insurance on self, spouse/domestic partner, and/or children without medical underwriting. If you are interested in increasing your optional life insurance, you will be provided a guaranteed issue of $25,000. An increase higher than $25,000 will require medical underwriting for approval. You can visit the Life Insurance section to learn more.

How can I find out how much optional life insurance do I currently have?
Your individualized enrollment form will be pre-populated with your current coverages. For further questions, you can contact Employee Benefit Services at 954-357-6700 or

Pre-existing Conditions and Long-Term Disability
If you are currently not enrolled in long-term disability, you can elect to enroll without Evidence of Insurability (EOI) unless you were previously declined by The Standard as ineligible. New enrollees that have a pre-existing condition that was diagnosed six (6) months prior to the effective date of coverage will have a 12-month waiting period for coverage. The Standard representatives can provide additional information on these exclusions.

Attend a fair to learn more
Representatives will be on-site to answer questions and assist with enrollment from March 3 - 7. Staff members from Human Resources Employee Benefit Services will be at scheduled locations to assist through March 14. Attending a session will allow you to meet with your current and new insurance representatives.
