Overview of SLT Benefits 


Voluntary Critical Illness

Voluntary Critical Illness Insurance is designed to cover the gap between Disability insurance and Life insurance. Due to medical advances, people are now surviving what were once terminal illnesses. Survival may, however, create very substantial lifestyle changes which carry a heavy financial cost. Critical Illness can ease these costs; in the event of a specified illness being diagnosed, a non-taxable lump sum benefit is payable. There are no restrictions on how these funds are used once received.

 


Optional Life Insurance

Once you have coverage for basic employee life insurance you may choose to purchase additional life insurance for yourself and your eligible dependents. Optional life insurance provides financial assistance to your beneficiary, in addition to your employee life insurance benefit. If your beneficiary dies before you or if there is no designated beneficiary, this benefit is payable to your estate.

Approval for optional employee or spousal life insurance coverage is subject to satisfactory medical evidence of insurability. You are responsible to pay for any costs associated with the medical examination, if required.

You will be notified once the insurer has approved your application for insurance. Your optional life insurance will be effective on the date the insurance company approves your coverage, and payroll deductions for premiums will begin on the first of the following month.
