How Much Life Insurance Do You Really Need?

Life Insurance helps ensure the financial security of your loved ones after you’re gone. To determine how much Life Insurance you need, think about what your family would need to maintain your current standard of living. Take into account your income, your work benefits, any outstanding debts, and estate costs. Plus, consider the other things you provide your family now, such as caring for children and making repairs around the house.

With ASCE Group Term Life Insurance, you'll have access to the following benefits:

  • Apply for up to $1,000,000 of member and spouse coverage.
  • Affordable, highly competitive Group Rates.
  • Premiums can be waived if you're disabled.
  • No exclusions: After coverage is validly in force for two years, benefits are payable for death from any cause, at any time, anywhere in the world. (Subject to U.S. government regulations on restricted countries.)
  • Portable coverage: Maintain your valuable ASCE Group Term Life Insurance protection throughout your career, no matter where it takes you.
  • Conversion to an individual Policy when coverage terminates (if you meet conversion requirements).
  • Living Benefit Option ("Accelerated Death Benefit"): Enables you to apply for a portion of your benefits if you qualify as being terminally ill, subject to certain policy restrictions and limitations. These benefits are paid directly to you, and you may spend them any way you wish. (See information and rates for more details. Not available to residents of Massachusetts.)

* * This calculation takes into consideration the Term Life premium increases that will occur over the next 10-year or 20-year period as the member reaches higher age brackets.

The Term Life premium for both member and spouse is based upon the member’s age, amount of insurance requested, usage of tobacco/nicotine products, and health status. Term Life rates increase on the premium due date coinciding with or next following the date that a member enters a new age bracket. New York Life may change premium contributions for the Term Life plan on any premium due date, but not more than once in any 12-month period, and on any date on which benefits are changed. However, your rates may change only if they are changed for all others in the same class of insureds under this group policy. For example, a class of insureds is a group of people all with the same issue age and tobacco/nicotine usage. Term Life benefit option amounts are subject to change by agreement between New York Life and the American Society of Civil Engineers.

Level Term Life premium is based on the member’s age and the spouse’s age, amount of insurance requested and health status. Level Term Life rates are guaranteed not to increase for the initial 10 or 20 year term. For the Level Term Life plans, only non-smokers meeting the highest underwriting standards will qualify for "Preferred" rates. Other non-smokers may qualify for higher "Select" or "Standard" rates. (Note: Smokers may only qualify for "Standard" rates.) Upon approval of your application, you will be notified of the rate classification for each approved person.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can my spouse obtain separate coverage?
Yes.

When will my coverage become effective?
For some plans, coverage becomes effective within a few days of receiving your application. For others, the process is longer because of required medical underwriting procedures. The "underwriting process" depends on many factors: the number of persons to be insured, their ages, the amount of coverage for which you apply, your medical history and that of your family members (if requesting dependent coverage), and the type of coverage requested.

Do I have to take a medical exam, blood test, or other health analysis?
Whether or not you must undergo medical testing depends on the plan you are requesting, your age, the amount of coverage for which you apply, and your individual medical history.

Can coverage continue if I am out of the country?
Call the Administrator for more details as coverage varies depending on the plan.

Who is the carrier on the Group Term Life Insurance Plan?
The ASCE Group Term Life Insurance plan is underwritten by New York Life Insurance Company under policy form GMR-G-10500-1/FACE.

Who Administers the Program?
The ASCE Group Insurance Program is administered by Pearl Insurance Group, LLC. Pearl Insurance strives to provide ASCE members with the most relevant, competitively priced member benefit insurance packages for individuals and their families. Pearl Insurance has been providing associations like the ASCE with quality group coverage for nearly 55 years.

Who recommends/approves benefit changes or premium changes?
The insurance companies reserve the right to change rates. They usually report "plan experience" (or the number and size of claims made) twice a year and, if applicable, rate action recommendations. Using this information, the program Administrator works with ASCE to evaluate the recommendations and decide what, if any, action (i.e. a rate action, a change in benefits, or even a change in insurance companies) is appropriate to maintain each plan's financial stability and competitive status. ASCE ultimately approves the action, and insured members are advised of their decision prior to implementation.
