Life Insurance

UNM offers term life insurance through the Standard Insurance Company. It is available to all benefits eligible employees and their dependents.


Employee Basic Life cost is $.085 per $1,000 of coverage. UNM contributes a percentage of your Basic Life Insurance premium based on your appointment percent and annualized salary. See UNM's Contribution to the Cost of Insurance for more information.

For more information about Employee Additional and Dependent Life Insurance see The Standard Life Insurance Booklet (Coming Soon!).
