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 2011. Therefore, the January 21, 2011 paycheck (paycheck issued for the payroll period ending January 8, 2011) 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, 2011.
