Annual Life Insurance Review Summary

The Annual Life Insurance Review ended at midnight on October 31, 2017. Here are a few interesting facts from this year’s review period: 

  • 19,798 members were eligible to increase coverage without proving insurability. 
  • 3,208 members increased their optional life insurance coverage. 
  • Only 59 members used the telephone to increase coverage for 2018. 

Changes made during the annual life insurance review period will be effective January 1, 2018. An optional life insurance report will be available on the Employer Secure Site in early January. Employees who increased coverage have already received confirmation letters. Members whose basic or optional life insurance amounts or premiums are changing will receive a confirmation letter in the next two weeks.

Workplace Possibilities

The Workplace Possibilities Program is happy to announce that, effective 10/24/2017, members will become covered under the program on their first day of employment with the state of Missouri. They will no longer have to wait 6 months of employment to apply for these services. Note that eligibility for the program has not changed and members will still not be covered under the program if they are 6 months away from their first eligibility for normal retirement. If you have any questions about the Workplace Possibilities Program please contact Thania Fitzgerald at (573) 644-1290.

MSEP 2011 Termination Forms

Programming has been completed that now allows us to start accepting future termination forms (dated on or after 1/1/2018) for MSEP 2011 members.  You can now process all terminations, even if the termination date is on or after 1/1/18.
