Corrections to the Group Life Insurance Administration Manual

Please note the following corrections to Chapter 5 of the Group Life Insurance Administration Manual, ET-1117 (Rev 11/2001).

Chapter 5, Page 2, Subchapter 500 Example

The paragraph next to "July 1, 2002" in the example has been changed to read: "The employee completes six months under WRS. Because you received the application before the employee completed six months under WRS and on or before the employee's eligibility date of July 1, 2002, life insurance coverage is effective on July 1, 2002."

The note in the example has been changed to read: "NOTE: If the employee had filed the application from 7/2/2002 through 7/31/2002, the coverage effective date would be 8/1/2002."

Chapter 5, Page 15, Subchapter 511, Situation #2

The example listed in Employment Situation 2, for a WRS participation begin date from the 2nd - 1st of the month, has been corrected to indicate:

  • Hired 2/5;
  • On LOA 3/5 through 4/30;
  • Eligible 10/1;
  • Application due by 10/31.

The above changes are reflected on the enclosed replacement pages. Simply insert these pages into Chapter 5 of your Manual. Please contact the Employer Communication Center at (608) 264-7900 if you have any questions.
