    Basic Term Life Insurance
    American pays the full cost of Basic Term Life Insurance up to a maximum of $70,000.
    If you've just joined American
    Consider electing the maximum level allowed when first eligible or you will be required to submit a Statement of Health later if you decide to increase your coverage.
    You can choose from the following coverage:
    • $15,000
    • One times your salary (if salary is less than $70,000)
    • Two times your salary (if salary is less than $35,000)
    • $70,000 (if two times your salary is greater than $70,000)
    You'll need to submit a Statement of Health if you now have less than the maximum benefit and want to increase your coverage.

    Voluntary Term Life Insurance
    Need additional coverage for you and your family? Consider Voluntary Term Life Insurance for you, your spouse/domestic partner or children. You pay the full cost of coverage and your premiums are after-tax. This means that you will not be taxed when the benefit is paid to you or your family.

    You won't need to submit a Statement of Health if you elect the first level of coverage when you're first eligible.
    • You can only increase coverage by one level each year with proof of good health.
    • Your spouse/domestic partner must provide proof of good health to purchase any level of Spouse Life.
    • You are not required to complete a Statement of Health for children.
    • Coverage requiring a Statement of Health becomes effective only after MetLife's approval and you have paid your first premium.

    Income Protection
    The best time to enroll for disability coverage is before you need it.
    If you wait until you experience an illness or non-work injury, proof of good health will be required and there is no guarantee of coverage.
    Optional Short-Term and Long-Term Disability
    Protect your income with Optional Short-Term Disability Insurance and Long-Term Disability. These benefits provide income if you become sick or injured and are unable to work for an extended period of time.

    You pay the entire cost of coverage, and since you pay your contributions on an after-tax basis, your disability benefit is not taxable when paid to you.

    Be sure to enroll when you're first eligible. If you enroll later, you'll need to submit a Statement of Health.
