Critical Illness Insurance

ING Compass Critical Illness Insurance

All part-time and full-time employees are automatically covered by Critical Illness Insurance through ING. This benefit, recommended by the Labor Management Committee and approved by the School Board, is being paid through our self-insured medical insurance fund. This plan provides a one-time tax-free lump-sum benefit of $2000 payable upon diagnosis of pre-defined critical illnesses – cancer, heart attack, coronary artery bypass, stroke, kidney failure, major organ failure, paralysis or coma. If you experience one of these diagnosis, you will receive a check sent directly to your home, which can be used to help pay deductibles, prescriptions or whatever you wish.

The $1.09 semi-monthly premium ($26.16 annually) is treated as income for tax and social security purposes. You will see "Taxable Critical" a non-wage item of $1.09 each pay period. You may opt out of this benefit by contacting Mary Gorman in Human Resources at 952-681-6444.
 

Critical Illness is portable.  This means that if you terminate your employment with the district (resignation or retirement) you can convert the insurance to an individual plan. Please contact Mary Gorman in HR if you want information on this benefit.
