Recognizing that individuals have different financial needs, The CSU provides eligible employees the opportunity to apply for Voluntary Life insurance for themselves and their families at competitive group rates. This is in addition to any employer-paid Basic Life insurance already in force.

Some features of your Voluntary Life insurance coverage include:

You may be eligible to purchase up to $1.5 million of Voluntary Life insurance for yourself, up to $750,000 for your spouse/domestic partner and/or $5,000, $10,000 or $20,000 for your children.

You can use the Needs Estimator to estimate how much Voluntary Life insurance you should have. Once you know how much Voluntary Life insurance you should have, find out how much it will cost by using the Premium Calculator.

For answers to commonly asked questions, costs, exclusions, limitations and reductions, please review the Voluntary Life Insurance Brochure and Certificate.
