Insured Employees who leave employment or become ineligible for Commission coverage due to a reduction in hours may either apply for portable group term life insurance similar to their Commission life insurance or may convert their life insurance to a non-group life insurance plan with the carrier providing Commission life insurance coverage when the Commission coverage ends without having to provide medical evidence of insurability. Employees must apply to the group life insurance carrier for portable life insurance coverage within 31 days of terminating Commission coverage and pay the first month's premium within 31 days of the date of the carrier's premium bill or within 15 days of the date the notice of conversion right is sent to the employee. Employees applying for non-group conversion coverage must do so within 90 days of the Commission's coverage termination. Only applicants in good premium standing when terminating their employment can be considered for continued coverage.
