When you move into an eligible classification, enrollment in the State-paid basic life insurance is automatic. Once the deduction code is established, the carrier (MetLife) will mail a packet of information to you.
You can apply for supplemental life insurance anytime by calling MetLife at 1-800-252-8524. They will answer questions and send you an application.
If you do not want this State-paid benefit, you must complete a Life Insurance Enrollment Authorization Form 698 to cancel the basic life insurance coverage.
