Options to retain your life and disability protection

When you lose coverage through your employer, your life and disability insurance doesn’t have to end. OneAmerica Financial cares about you and your family’s financial health. Learn how to keep your protection now, so you can focus on what’s next for your future.

You have two ways to keep your life insurance coverage and one way to retain your disability coverage. 

Two ways to keep life insurance coverage

Through portability

Portability allows you to continue the life insurance coverage as offered by your employer. This option is available to everyone under age 70 and may allow you to continue coverage of eligible dependents if you continue your coverage.

 

Three steps to apply for group term life portability

  • Gather required information

    You will need the following information to submit with your application:

    • Employer and group insurance information (from your employer)
    • Bank draft information to set up automatic payment
    • Beneficiary information, and dependent information if you are continuing dependent coverage

    More information about calculating your rate for portability of coverage.

  • Complete the application

    Download the Portability Form (G-21776)

     

    For more information about completing the portability application, please refer to this guide.

  • Submit within the deadline

    You can submit your application by mail, email or fax.

Through conversion

Conversion allows you to turn the life insurance coverage offered by your employer into an individual whole life policy. This option is available to everyone under age 85 and may allow you to continue coverage of eligible dependents, even if you opt out of coverage for yourself.

 

Three steps to apply for conversion into whole life insurance

  • Gather required information

    You will need the following information to submit with your application:

    • Employer and group insurance information (from your employer)
    • Bank draft information to set up automatic payment
    • Beneficiary information, and dependent information if you are continuing dependent coverage

Note: Premiums may be different than the group policy but are guaranteed not to increase once the individual policy is issued. Whole life insurance policies accrue cash value and have the potential to earn dividends.

Keep disability insurance coverage

Portability allows you to continue your group disability insurance offered by your employer for up to 12 months after a change in employment status. Coverage is available to individuals under age 70 who are not receiving disability benefits and meet all other eligibility requirements.
