GIC Optional Life Insurance
Optional Life Insurance is available to provide economic support for your family. With this option, you may purchase up to eight times your annual salary. Term insurance covers you and pays your designated beneficiary in the event of your death or certain other catastrophic events. It is not an investment policy; it has no cash value. This is an employee-pay-all benefit. If you have been diagnosed with a terminal illness, you may elect an advance payment of your life insurance death benefits (Accelerated Life Benefit).
For more information please review the GIC Benefits Decision Guide.
