OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION 

Exclusions
You’re covered 365 days a year, wherever you are. The only exclusion is suicide within the first two years of the date your insurance or increase in insurance starts. The Accelerated Life Benefit is subject to additional exclusions.

Accelerated Life Benefit
The Accelerated Life Benefit option is available to help terminally ill insureds during a difficult, and often financially challenging, time. You must have at least $10,000 in Life Insurance coverage in force to qualify for this benefit. Under this provision, you may request one advance payment equal to 60% of your in force life insurance, or $250,000, whichever is less, to be paid while the terminally ill person is still alive. The amount of insurance payable after the insured’s death will be reduced by this payment. Premium contributions will not be reduced.

This money can be used to help cover high prescription drug costs … medical bills … outstanding debts … to help pay for experimental treatments … the cost of modifications to your home … or for a family vacation–the choice is yours.

To qualify, a terminally ill insured must provide ReliaStar Life with a doctor’s statement which gives the diagnosis of your medical condition and states you have a life expectancy of no more than 24 months. For additional details and limitations, please see the Certificate of Insurance.

Please note that receipt of Accelerated Life Benefits may affect your eligibility for public assistance programs and may be taxable. Prior to applying to receive such benefits, you should seek the advice of a qualified tax advisor.

You Name Your Beneficiary
You may name anyone you wish as the beneficiary of this plan, and you may change the beneficiary by contacting the Insurance Administrator in writing and advising them of the change.

You may also choose to name a beneficiary that you cannot change without his or her consent. This is an irrevocable beneficiary.

ADDITIONAL PLAN PROVISIONS
Effective Date
Your or your spouse’s/domestic partner's insurance starts on the first day of the month on or after the later of the following dates:

  • ReliaStar Life approves your or your spouse’s/domestic partner's proof of good health;
  • Your or your spouse’s/domestic partner's premium is received;
  • You or your spouse/domestic partner become eligible for insurance; or
  • You or your spouse/domestic partner apply for insurance, if proof of good health is not required.


You may select from $100,000 to $500,000 in 10-Year Life insurance coverage (in $5,000 increments). Coverage continues as long as you remain an active member of the ISBA, pay your premium when due; and the Group Policy remains in force. Your amount of coverage will not decrease due to age during a level term rate period.

For members or spouses or domestic partners who are under age 60 at the end of a level term period, coverage will not reduce until age 65. Member coverage will reduce by 50% at age 65, 70 and 75. Coverage terminates on the group policy anniversary date on or after your 80th birthday.

When Coverage Ends
As long as you remain an active member of the ISBA, pay your premium when due, and the group policy remains in force, you can keep your coverage. Coverage terminates at age 80.

Your insurance stops on the earliest of the following dates:

  • The last day of the month during which you are no longer eligible for insurance under the Group Policy;
  • The end of the period for which you paid premiums, if you do not make the next required premium contribution when due;
  • The date the Group Policy terminates;
  • The premium due date on or after your 80th birthday;


Renewal Payments and Claims 
Once you are approved for coverage, you will have a 31–day grace period for your payment of renewal premium contributions. When you want to submit a claim, call or write the Administrator for claim forms. 

Certificate of Insurance 
This is a summary of benefits only. A complete description of benefits, limitations, exclusions and termination of coverage will be provided in the certificate of coverage. All coverage is subject to the terms of the group policy. If there is any discrepancy between this document and the group policy documents, the policy documents will govern.

When you become insured, you will be sent a Certificate of Insurance detailing your benefits under the Group Policy. 

30–Day Free Look
If you are not completely satisfied with the terms of your Certificate of Insurance, you may return it within 30 days provided no claims have been submitted or paid. Your coverage will be invalidated and you will be sent a full refund of premiums paid–no questions asked! 

PLEASE KEEP FOR YOUR RECORDS
All members and spouses/domestic partners must complete an application form for any new coverage or to increase coverage (including dependent coverage) or to begin an initial or subsequent 10–year Level Term Rate Period when proof of good health is required. Some applicants may be required to have a medical exam in order to apply for coverage. For more information on medical requirements, please contact your Plan Administrator. If there is an increase in the amount of your insurance, the increase will take effect on the first day of the month on or next following the date of the increase. If you are in a Level Term Rate Period, premiums for the increased amount of insurance will be based on your attained age on the effective date of the increase. Your ISBA Level Term Life Plan will start on the first day of the month after your application has been approved by the insurer and your first premium has been paid.
