Supplemental Death Benefit Plan
If you are classified by the University as a regular employee, work a full-time schedule, and have an appointment of nine months’ or more duration, you automatically become a member of the Supplemental Death Benefit Plan on the day that you complete five years of continuous full-time service. In the event of your death, the Supplemental Death Benefit Plan will automatically provide your beneficiaries with a lump-sum payment equal to one month’s base salary. Employees whose percentage time worked decreases below the eligibility requirements for the Supplemental Death Benefit Plan will no longer be able to participate in the benefit plan.
If you are not actively at work performing your normal duties on the day you would normally become eligible, you will not become a member of the plan until the day you return to active work.
