Group Life Insurance


  • Convenient Enrollment: Easy sign-up through your employer.
  • Guaranteed Coverage: No medical exams are required.
  • Low Cost: Often free or very inexpensive.


  • Job-Dependent: Coverage is tied to employment status.
  • Non-Portable: You lose coverage if you leave your job.

What Happens to Group Life Insurance When You Leave a Job?

When you leave your job, group life insurance coverage typically ends. Some policies may offer conversion options, allowing you to convert your group coverage to an individual policy, usually at a higher premium. It’s essential to review your plan details and consider supplemental individual term life insurance to ensure continuous protection.

Group Vs. Term Life Insurance

Term Life Insurance


  • Lower Costs: More affordable for healthy individuals.
  • Fixed Premiums: Stable costs over the policy term.
  • Portability: Coverage is not tied to your job.
  • Flexibility: Wide range of policy options and riders.


  • Underwriting Required: Medical exams and detailed health questions may be necessary.

What Happens to Term Life Insurance When You Leave a Job?

Individually owned term life insurance is independent of your employment status. If you leave your job, your term life insurance remains intact as long as you continue to pay the premiums. This portability ensures that you maintain coverage regardless of your employment situation, providing continuous protection for your beneficiaries.
