Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I calculate the rate on a TSCPA Group Life Insurance Plan?

    Premium contributions for both the member and spouse are based on the member's age and increase as the member grows older.

  • How long does the application process take? 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.

    The TSCPA Group Term Life Insurance plan is underwritten by New York Life Insurance Company under policy form GMR-G-14046-1/FACE.
