Accelerated Death Benefit
Basic and Supplemental Life

You and your spouse may be eligible to receive up to 75% of your (combined basic and supplemental) life insurance coverage if diagnosed with a terminal or serious medical condition.


Beneficiaries
Basic, AD&D and Supplemental Life

Employees who wish to add or change life insurance beneficiaries must use the Munis Employee Self Service. Beneficiaries changed in or added to the Munis Employee Self Service will be used for both basic and supplemental life insurance. You will need to enter the beneficiary’s Social Security Number and date of birth. You must add one or more primary beneficiaries, and you have the option to add one or more contingent beneficiaries. Life insurance beneficiaries can be changed at any time during the year, without a qualifying event.

If you die, a distribution of your benefits payable on account of your death will be paid to your primary beneficiary(s); and if no primary beneficiary survives you, then to your contingent beneficiary(s); and if no beneficiary survives you, payment will be made to those who survive you as follows:

  • Your Spouse
  • If there is no spouse, in equal shares to your children
  • If there is no spouse, or you have no children, to your parents, equally or to the survivor
  • If there is no spouse, or you have no children, or parents, in equal shares to your brothers and sisters
  • If none of the above survives, to your executors or administrators of your estate
