New Metro Employee Benefit

Scott Nicholas

Great news! Some time ago Sheriff Lombardo and Undersheriff McMahill requested that CFO Rich Hoggan find funding in LVMPD’s budget to provide life insurance for all Department members.

Hoggan tasked the Benefit Section and Accounting Section with assembling the pieces of this very lengthy process. Together they brought the following life insurance coverages to Sheriff Lombardo for his final approval. Without hesitation Sheriff Lombardo approved the life insurance for all Metro employees — at no cost to you!

The only thing you have to do is take a few minutes to log in and finalize the coverage. Please take this opportunity to protect your family financially in case of your untimely death.

A lot of hard work went into providing this benefit to all of us, so if you have the chance, please say thank you to the Sheriff and his team that I mentioned above.

LVMPD is providing, at no cost, $25,000 basic life, $25,000 AD&D and $25,000 line-of-duty hazard insurance coverage to all full-time employees. Employees just need to log in to the address provided at right, accept this coverage and designate their beneficiaries.

New hires: You are eligible to purchase additional life and AD&D coverage for yourself, spouse and children once you have been a full-time employee with LVMPD for 60 days. If you apply within 60 days of your eligibility date, you can elect coverage up to the guaranteed issue amount ($250,000 for employees, $30,000 for spouses and $20,000 for children) without submitting medical history. All amounts over the guaranteed issue amount are subject to medical history.

All other employees after open enrollment ends: You may enroll or increase your coverage at any time during the year, but any increases outside change in family status will require you to submit a medical history. If you elect additional life insurance when eligible, you can increase your amount each May by $10,000, $20,000 or $30,000 (not to exceed the guaranteed issue amount) without submitting medical history. See the coverage highlights for more details, including costs, exclusions, limitations and reductions.
