Voluntary Life & Disability

Supplemental Life and AD&D Insurance
Summary of Benefit
When it comes to protecting the financial security of you and your family, nothing is more important than planning ahead. Even though you already have Basic Life insurance, it is important to ask yourself whether it provides the protection you need to cover all of your financial responsibilities. Purchasing insurance on yourself, your spouse and/or your children can help alleviate unforeseen expenses if a tragic event occurs.

Voluntary group term life insurance can be purchased in addition to the Basic Life insurance provided by the City of Chattanooga. Premiums can be deducted from your paycheck.

Full-time employees are eligible for coverage through VOYA. Employees must purchase Supplemental Life insurance coverage for themselves in order to purchase coverage for a spouse or child(ren).
