Supplemental and Dependent Life Insurance do not provide payment of benefits for death caused by suicide within the first two years (one year in North Dakota) of the effective date of the certificate, or payment of increased benefits for death caused by suicide within two years (one year in North Dakota or Colorado) of an increase in coverage. In addition, a reduction schedule may apply. Please see your benefits administrator or certificate for specific details.

Accidental Death & Dismemberment insurance does not include payment for any loss which is caused by or contributed to by: physical or mental illness, diagnosis of or treatment of the illness; an infection, unless caused by an external wound accidentally sustained; suicide or attempted suicide; injuring oneself on purpose; the voluntary intake or use by any means of any drug, medication or sedative, unless taken as prescribed by a doctor or an over-the-counter drug taken as directed; voluntary intake of alcohol in combination with any drug, medication or sedative; war, whether declared or undeclared, or act of war, insurrection, rebellion or riot; committing or trying to commit a felony; any poison, fumes or gas, voluntarily taken, administered or absorbed; service in the armed forces of any country or international authority, except the United States National Guard; operating, learning to operate, or serving as a member of a crew of an aircraft; while in any aircraft for the purpose of descent from such aircraft while in flight (except for self preservation); or operating a vehicle or device while intoxicated as defined by the laws of the jurisdiction in which the accident occurs.

Life and AD&D coverages are provided under a group insurance policy (Policy Form GPNP99 or G2130-S) issued to your employer by MetLife. Life and AD&D coverages under your employer’s plan terminates when your employment ceases, when your Life and AD&D contributions cease, or upon termination of the group insurance policy.

Should your life insurance coverage terminate for reasons other than non-payment of premium, you may convert it to a MetLife individual permanent policy without providing medical evidence of insurability.

This summary provides an overview of your plan’s benefits. These benefits are subject to the terms and conditions of the contract between MetLife and your employer and are subject to each state’s laws and availability. Specific details regarding these provisions can be found in the certificate.
