Help protect your employees and their families with Principal life insurance.
Group life insurance shows employees you value what matters most to them—their loved ones. Team life insurance.
Many employers offering employee benefits consider group term life insurance an essential part of their benefits package. Why? It provides employees with a basic level of protection. Plus, adding voluntary term life insurance to your benefits package allows employees to purchase additional coverage for themselves and coverage for their dependents.
Principal offers flexible group term life and voluntary term life insurance to meet the needs of you and your employees.
Who pays the insurance premium?
You can choose to pay for all, part, or none of the premium with Principal life insurance. If your budget is tight, employees could pick up the entire cost of premium with voluntary term life insurance.
Key features of Principal life insurance
When you combine group term life (employer-paid) and voluntary term life (employee-paid) coverage, you offer an even broader range of protection for employees. Best of all, your employees have guaranteed coverage—meaning they can get up to a certain amount of life insurance without answering medical questions.
Our flexible life insurance lets you customize a package just right for your company. Here are a few highlights of our coverage.
Life insurance whole life
Understanding group life insurance terms
Coverage is a set amount. For example, a flat $20,000 is a life insurance benefit of $20,000.
Percentage of salary
Coverage is a percentage of the employee’s salary. For example, an employee has a life insurance policy that is twice (or 200%) her salary. Her salary is $50,000, which means a life insurance benefit of $100,000.
Choose from a flat dollar amount and let employees elect a benefit that fits their needs and their budget by selecting a benefit that is a multiple of that dollar amount. For example, if you select a $20,000 increment, employees could purchase $20,000; $40,000; $60,000, etc.
Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D)
It’s no surprise. People have accidents every day. And, unfortunately, some of them are severe. Adding Accidental Death & Dismemberment coverage to group term life or voluntary term life provides your employees with even greater protection. A core benefit is paid for the loss of life, hands, feet, thumb and index finger, or vision as the result of an accident.
