Portability and Conversion Coverage

Portability Coverage

  • Employees leaving employment in good health, can apply for Portability coverage through UNUM. An employee whose hours drop below full-time status may also apply.
  • The employee must request, apply and pay for the Portability coverage within 31 days of termination of employment or change in employment status.
  • Employees can port to the amount of coverage they held under their employer’s policy or a decreased amount.
  • This is a term life policy.

Conversion Coverage

  • An employee terminating employment who is “suffering from a disease that has a material and substantial effect on his/her life expectancy” may purchase a Conversion Policy to replace the amount of life insurance he/she had when coverage terminated.
  • The employee must request, apply and pay for the Conversion Policy within 31 days after the group life insurance policy ends. The amount of coverage will remain the same.
  • The employee can convert to a 1 year term policy. After the first year, it transitions to a whole life policy. No questions are asked about the employee’s health or any other insurance risk factors. No verification of disability is required.
  • The cost of the Conversion Policy will be based on UNUM’s published rates for age and classes of risk at the time of purchase.
  • For more information, please contact the Michigan Catholic Conference Benefits Department by phone at (800) 395-5565 or via email at benefits@micatholic.org.
