MEC Benefits Committee
Flight Attendants who take advantage of the Special COLA offerings are reminded, when returning from Leaves of Absence (LOA), auto-enrollment in Group Universal Life Coverage (GUL), administered by Securian, will occur for any Flight Attendants who did not elect to maintain coverage while on Leave or who had not previously elected this coverage.These individuals will be enrolled in Group Universal Life Coverage under the same conditions as a new hire Flight Attendant. With no requirement to provide Evidence of Insurability (EOI), Flight Attendants are automatically provided coverage at four (4) times their annual salary and $30,000 coverage for a spouse/domestic partner.Additionally, if the Flight Attendant reduced her/his coverage below the default coverage limits, the auto-enrollment feature will “bump up” the coverage back up to four times the annual salary for the employee and $30,000 for the spouse or domestic partner.It is important that everyone understand, the coverage is automaticunless you act to decline the coverage during the first 45 days following your return to work.
