Rates and/or benefits may be changed on a class basis. Rates are based on the attained age of the Insured Person and increase as you enter each new age category.

*You will be billed four times a year. If applicable, an additional $2.00 billing fee will be included on your billing notice payable to the administrator. To save the fee, select Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) as a safe and secure payment option. Coverage begins on the first day of the month following approval by the Insurer and payment of first premium. Coverage continues with no decrease in coverage until you reach age 80. At age 80, coverage, if greater than $5,000, will reduce to $5,000 with an appropriate adjustment in premium. Coverage cannot be canceled as long as you remain a member of the Fleet Reserve Association, pay your premiums on time and the Master Policy remains in force. Coverage for your spouse will continue for as long as he/she remains eligible due to age and marital status. Full details are contained in the Certificate of Insurance, which will be issued to persons who become insured under the Plan. The Plan may not be available to residents of all states. This Plan terminates at age 90.

Eligibility: As an active FRA member, between the ages of 50 and 74, and a resident of the U.S., you and your Spouse are eligible for coverage. Your Spouse may not be legally separated or divorced from you.

Termination: Coverage will end on the earliest to occur of: the date the Master Policy terminates; or the Premium Due Date on or next following the date You: a) cease to be an active member of FRA; b) attain age 90; the date You are no longer in a class eligible for coverage, or the class is canceled; or the Premium Due Date that You fail to pay any required premium, subject to the Individual Grace Period. Your dependent’s coverage will remain in effect as long as your coverage is active, premiums are paid, and they meet the eligibility requirements.

Exclusions: If a Covered Person commits suicide, while sane or insane, during his or her first two years of coverage under the policy, we will only pay an amount equal to the premium paid for coverage to the date of death.

Effective Date: Your coverage will become effective upon receipt of the Enrollment form and your first premium payment.

Limitations: Graded Life Benefit - During a person’s first two years of coverage, benefits for loss of life due to Injury are covered. Loss of life due to sickness is not covered during the first two years. In the case of loss of life for sickness, premiums plus interest will be refunded. Since coverage is issued without medical underwriting, the premium rate being charged includes an extra mortality risk charge.

Accelerated Death Benefit Description:

If a Covered Person:

  1. is under age 80;
  2. is covered for a term life insurance benefit amount under the policy of at least $5,000;
  3. is diagnosed as terminally ill while covered under the policy, with a life expectancy of 12 months or less, and gives us satisfactory proof of such Terminal Illness; and
  4. requests in writing a portion of the amount of his or her life insurance benefit be paid as an accelerated benefit; we will pay an Accelerated Death Benefit up to 50% (maximum $12,500.00) of the Covered Person’s Life Insurance Benefit.

Upon satisfactory proof of the Covered Person’s Terminal Illness, we will also:

  1. continue his or her life insurance; and
  2. waive premiums for such insurance.

However, continued insurance will be subject to any reductions in amounts of insurance provision under the policy. Termination of the policy will not affect such continuation.

The Covered Person’s Amount of Life Insurance payable upon his or her death will be reduced by any Accelerated Benefit Amount already received under the benefit. Receipt of accelerated benefits may be taxable. Seek assistance from your personal tax advisor for more information.¹

Important Definition: Injury means bodily injury resulting directly from an accident, and independently of all other causes, which occurs while covered under the policy. Loss resulting from sickness or disease, except a pus-forming infection which occurs through an accidental wound, or medical or surgical treatment of a sickness or disease, is not considered as resulting from Injury.
