Life insurance, accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance, and disability coverage provide important financial protection for you and your family.

Life and AD&D Insurance

It’s important to plan for your family’s financial security in case the unexpected happens. That’s why Green Dot Public Schools provides basic life insurance and basic AD&D insurance though Lincoln Financial — at no cost to you.

During Annual Open Enrollment, you also have the option of buying voluntary life and/or supplemental AD&D insurance for yourself and your family through easy payroll deductions.  

Basic Life and AD&D

Coverage is automatic; company pays

Green Dot provides basic life and AD&D insurance at no cost to you. Basic life coverage is equal to one times your annual earnings, up to a maximum of $200,000. If you become dismembered or lose any senses as the result of an accident, you will receive all or a portion of the full benefit based on the loss suffered.

Voluntary Life and AD&D

You must enroll; you pay for coverage through before-tax payroll deductions

If you wish to supplement your basic insurance provided by Green Dot, you can purchase additional insurance for yourself and your dependents. 

Voluntary Life and AD&D Coverage Options
For you Choose coverage amount of up to $500,000, or five times your annual covered salary, whichever is less, in $10,000 increments. Coverage over $150,000 requires you to provide Evidence of Insurability (EOI).

Note: Voluntary AD&D insurance is automatically provided to you if you elect voluntary life and is equal to your elected voluntary life insurance amount.
For your spouse/ domestic partner Choose coverage amount of up to $250,000 in $5,000 increments (not to exceed 50% of employee’s elected amount). Coverage over $20,000 requires EOI.
For your child(ren) Choose coverage amount of: $10,000 – age 6 months to 26 years, no EOI required; $1,000 – under age 6 months, no EOI required

Note: At age 65, your coverage and your spouse’s/domestic partner’s coverage will decrease to 65% of the benefit amount. At age 70, it will decrease to 50% of the benefit amount.
