The County provides Basic Life Insurance at no cost to you! If you would like more than these amounts, you can apply anytime for Supplemental Life Insurance for up to $500,000 for yourself and up to $500,000 for your spouse/domestic partner.

You are guaranteed coverage for up to $200,000 for yourself and $50,000 for spouse/domestic partner, if you apply within 31 days of hire. For more than this amount, The Standard requires a medical questionnaire and will approve or deny.

How to apply:

  • Apply using the Workday Benefits and Pay HubChange Benefits> Supplemental Life Enroll/Cancel > use today's date > then make your desired changes and submit! 
    • Costs will be deducted post-tax from your paycheck semi-monthly basis.
    • You can apply any time, not just during open enrollment.
    • The minimum coverage amount starts at $30,000.
