You may enroll your spouse and dependent children in term life insurance programs with The Hartford. Dependent Basic life: $10,000 of coverage for spouse and $5,000 for qualified children. Supplemental Dependent Life in units of $10,000 to a maximum of $250,000 for spouse and in units of $5,000 to a maximum of $20,000 for children. Coverage after the $20,000 supplemental for spouse requires proof of insurability. Child life insurance does not require proof of insurability.

Hartford Life Insurance Conversion and Portability

How It Works - The Portability option allows terminating employees to continue their life insurance coverage under a separate group policy. This means you can take your coverage with you at a reasonable group rate when you leave your job.

The Hartford will mail a letter to your home address after terminating with the University. This letter will contain all the information you need to set up the Conversion and Portability. For information about taking your life insurance policy(ies) with you when you leave USU or converting to your own policy with The Hartford, please call the Portability/Conversion Unit at (877) 320-0484.
