Open Enrollment

February 1-28

KPERS is now offering Spouse coverage as part of Optional Group Life Insurance.

During open enrollment, employees can enroll for guaranteed coverage for both themselves and their spouses.

Coverage effective May 1

Guaranteed Coverage Amounts

Spouse Coverage

Spouses are eligible for $10,000 or $25,000 of guaranteed coverage without answering any health questions. $50,000 and $100,000 amounts are also available with proof of good health.

Employee Coverage

Employees are eligible for up to $25,000 of guaranteed coverage (in $5,000 increments subject to $250,000 plan max) without answering any health questions. Amounts over $25,000 during open enrollment require proof of good health.

Important Exceptions

Members previously declined coverage are not eligible for the guaranteed coverage offer.

Members cannot cover a spouse if the spouse is an active member of KPERS, KP&F or Kansas Board of Regents Mandatory Retirement Plan.

What about KP&F

KP&F members need to have OGLI coverage on themselves to be eligible for spouse coverage.

Spouse coverage is a rider on existing coverage. KPERS members automatically have Basic Group LIfe Insurance and that makes them eligible. KP&F members don't have Basic coverage.
