Boston Mutual Life Insurance Company
Solutions for the Workplace

Today, offering products that help both employers and employees deal with the rising cost of traditional benefits isn’t just good business, it’s the right thing to do. At Boston Mutual Life Insurance, we understand that we’re all in this together, and together, we can help provide a measure of financial security for the people that matter most to you.

What is Life Insurance?

Life Insurance provides protection against the economic loss caused by the death of the person insured. Simply put, life insurance provides a lump sum payment (sometimes known as a death benefit) to beneficiaries in the event of the insured’s death. The amount of premium paid for this coverage varies based on the type of life insurance, the amount of coverage, and other factors. Group Life Insurance traditionally is paid for by an employer as part of their employee’s benefit package. Voluntary Life Insurance is typically purchased based on the needs and goals of the individual wanting to insure his/her life. Life Insurance can help replace lost income due to death. This money can also help to pay funeral costs, medical expenses not covered by health insurance, and other outstanding debts.

Term Life Insurance

Term life insurance coverage is where the benefit is payable only if the insured dies during a specified period. This coverage is less costly than other types of life insurance as there is no cash value build-up.

Employee Life Option Plus – Whole Life Insurance

Whole Life insurance, sometimes referred to as permanent or interest sensitive life insurance, is more than just life insurance at an affordable price. It combines the guaranteed premiums, coverage, and values that have always been so attractive in whole life insurance with the advantages of cash accumulation at current interest rates. Our whole life workplace insurance, Employee Life Option Plus, is an endowment at age 95 life insurance policy, which means the face value would be paid to the insured, if living, at age 95. With whole life coverage, the employee chooses the amount of insurance or the amount of premium that best suits their needs and budget. Coverage Highlights:

  • Coverage is made available to eligible employees and union members on a voluntary basis. The premium is typically deducted from the employee's paycheck.
  • The employee does not have to apply in order to cover their spouse, children, and grandchildren
  • True Guaranteed Issue, up to certain limits, regardless of past or present health problems for actively at work employees, children and grandchildren. No minimum participation requirements.
  • If the employee has a family, whole life insurance enables them to build a cash reserve for themselves, their spouse, their children, and grandchildren for less than 1 hour’s pay per week. It’s a sound way to protect their family without exceeding their present budget.
  • If the employee is single with no dependents, the flexibility of the whole life plan allows them to expand their coverage to meet future responsibilities
  • If they are nearing retirement, obligations and responsibilities have probably come and gone in the past few years. Now they can think about their future. The whole life plan can be continued after retirement at the same premium.
  • The cash value when an insured reached age 65, which is illustrated at the time of purchase, is guaranteed as long as coverage stays in force. The actual cash value may be decreased by loans or withdrawals.
  • Coverage is effective as of the application date
  • As long as premiums are paid, the cost of their whole life policy can never go up
  • If they buy a minimum amount of coverage, they guarantee themselves the right to purchase any remaining portion of the guarantee issue limit at future approved enrollments (subject to product and payroll deduction availability)
  • Even if their employment changes, the employee can keep this coverage and pay us directly for the premiums
  • Can be offered as payroll deduction or EFT
