The County of Santa Clara offers a supplemental life insurance policy to regular coded employees working full or part-time. This plan is voluntary and fully paid for by the employee.

 
Eligibility
All active hourly and salaried employees holding regular coded positions and working one-half time or more per week are eligible for coverage. This is a voluntary plan fully paid for by the employee. A health clearance may be required. You may designate any beneficiary.
 
 
Advantage of Enrolling Promptly
If you enroll within 30 days of your date of hire, then no health statement is required. If you decline to enroll during this 30 day period and elect to apply for this insurance at a later date, then satisfactory evidence of insurability will be required. A release of your medical records and a physical examination at your own expense may be required. Upon completing a Supplemental Life Evidence of Insurability form, it may take up to three months for an approval or denial of coverage from the insurance company.
 
 
Schedule of Benefits
Please see the plan brochure below for the schedule of benefits and costs. This brochure is also available at your Departmental Employee Service Center. This is a voluntary plan fully paid for by the employee, the costs for which are determined by the employee’s base salary. All coverages will be updated automatically as your base salary changes as a result of pay increases. You may also choose an option of a fixed-benefit amount, for which the cost remains fixed and does not change when your salary changes. The biweekly costs are the same whether an employee is full-time or part-time.
