All employees with benefits have Basic Life Insurance provided by the County at no cost, through The Standard Insurance Company.

The amount of coverage varies according to each bargaining unit (group).

Assign your beneficiaries in Workday for who your want to receive your life insurance benefits when you pass away.

If you would like Supplemental life insurance for more than this Basic life amount, apply using Workday. You may be required to complete a medical questionnaire.

Basic Life Insurance Imputed Income Calculator for County-paid life benefits over $50,000


Important: The IRS taxes the value of the premium for employer-provided, basic life insurance on coverage over $50,000. If this applies to you, you will see an amount on each paystub (monthly amount divided in two), based on your age and coverage, representing the value of the premium for the coverage in excess of $50,000, not based on the actual death benefit paid to beneficiaries.
