• Voluntary Benefits

    The University offers three supplemental plans with MetLife.

    • Accident Insurance
    • Critical Illness Insurance
    • Legal Plan

    Accident and Critical Illness Insurance are designed to complement, but not replace, your major medical insurance. These plans can help cover your out-of-pocket expenses for catastrophic events. Both plans pay a lump-sum benefit directly to you, not the medical provider.

    The legal plan will allow you to get easy access to professional legal counsel for a variety of legal matters with no additional fee.

    Accident Insurance

    Accident Insurance supplements your primary medical plan and disability programs by providing cash benefits in cases of accidental injuries. You can use this money to help pay for uncovered medical expenses, such as your deductible or coinsurance, or for ongoing living expenses, such as your mortgage or rent. Visit the MetLife website for more details, rates and plan information. For assistance contact a MetLife customer service representative at 800-438-6388, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m.to 8:00 p.m..

    Critical Illness Insurance

    When a serious illness strikes, such as a heart attack, stroke, or cancer, Critical Illness Insurance can provide a lump-sum benefit to cover out-of-pocket expenses for your treatments that are not covered by your medical plan. You can also use the money to take care of your everyday living expenses, such as housekeeping services, special transportation services, and day care. Benefits are paid directly to you, unless assigned to someone else. Visit the MetLife website for more details, rates and plan information. For additional assistance contact a MetLife customer service representative at 800-438-6388, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m.to 8:00 p.m..
