To help protect your family from the financial burden of death or sudden injury, the Archdiocese of Baltimore provides basic and optional (supplemental) life insurance through CIGNA.
You must designate a beneficiary for this benefit. Please complete a beneficiary designation form and return it with your enrollment form. You can change your beneficiary at any time by completing a new beneficiary form.
Evidence of Insurability
Evidence of insurability may be required if you do not enroll for the supplemental life insurance coverage or the dependent life insurance coverage when you first become eligible.
The value of the first $50,000 of employer-provided life insurance is considered a tax free benefit. The value of your employer-provided life insurance in excess of $50,000 is considered taxable income to you (imputed income). The value is based on an IRS table according to your age. This value will be added to your W-2 as part of your taxable income. If you name a charitable organization as the beneficiary of your total benefit or the benefit in excess of $50,000, it will not be considered taxable income. Please contact the Division of Employee Benefits for further details.
Basic life insurance is supplied by your direct employer. To enroll for Supplemental Life Insurance, complete the Supplemental Life enrollment form, give your completed form to your direct employer.
