Group Term Life Insurance

Group Term Life Insurance
A type of insurance coverage offered to a group of people. This coverage will provide a benefit to the beneficiaries if the covered individual dies during the defined covered period. As with other types of group benefits, group term life insurance is generally cheaper than comparable individual policy coverage. For this reason, group term life insurance is often a key component in employee benefit packages.

Group term life insurance plans are usually offered by employers or other fraternal providers to members or employees.The cost of the first $50,000 of group term life insurance premiums is tax-free to employees and deductible for employers that bear the premium expense. The cost of any additional term coverage will generally show up in box 14 on an employee's W-2 form.
