SUMMARY: Optional Group Life Insurance Rate Changes

Please note that effective January 1, 2007 the Optional Group Life Insurance rates are changing as follows:
 

Age at the Beginning
of the Calendar Year
Monthly Premium
per $1,000
Under 25 $0.05
25-29 $0.06
30-34 $0.08
35-39 $0.09
40-44 $0.10
45-49 $0.14
50-54 $0.21
55-59 $0.40
60-64 $0.61
65-69 $1.18
70-74 $1.90
75 and Older $2.06

The Under 30 age range has changed to Under 25 and a new age range of 25-29 has been added. 

An administrative fee of $0.20 per month will continue to be added to the premium each month.  Maximum coverage available is $250,000.00.  The age calculation will continue to be based on the employee’s attained age as of January 1st of the current calendar year.

The new rates are effective with coverage for the month of January 2007.  Therefore, the January 26, 2007 paycheck (paycheck issued for the payroll period ending January 13, 2007) will be the first check issued with the new rates, since Optional Group Life Insurance premiums are collected on the second biweekly paycheck of the month for that month’s coverage. 

The Division of Accounts and Reports, Payroll Services Team will ensure the updates are made to the SHARP payroll system to effect this change for all employees from whom SHARP calculates pay.  Regent's institutions are responsible for ensuring that this change is made in their respective systems prior to January 1, 2007.
