Note: Employees represented by a labor union should refer to their collective bargaining agreements for information on life and disability insurance.
The Port provides a Basic Life insurance benefit of twice the employee’s annual salary rounded up to the next $100 increment to a maximum of $600,000 without requiring evidence of medical insurability.
Dependent life insurance is also provided at $1,000 per eligible family member.
Employees wanting to avoid taxable income from the Port-provided Basic Life benefit can elect $50,000 of coverage in lieu of coverage equaling two times annual salary. Should this option be elected, the employee would need to provide evidence of insurability if an increase in coverage is requested in the future, and coverage would then be subject to approval by the insurance company. Please refer to HR's Compass site for more information.

Employees who are covered by the Port-sponsored Basic Life insurance policy may purchase voluntary additional life insurance for themselves, and/or spouses or domestic partners. You may request an additional flat $50,000, or an additional 1x or 2x your annual earnings.

If the application is made within 30 days of the date of hire, $50,000 of guaranteed issue coverage for the employee will be provided and $25,000 of guaranteed issue coverage for the employee’s spouse or domestic partner will be provided, even if the employee or partner is denied a higher amount of coverage.
