Life Insurance & Disability
We provide a basic level of life insurance with the option to purchase additional coverage for you and your dependents. The basic life insurance provides 1X your base pay with the option to purchase up to 7X your base pay.
When you elect employee and/or dependent life insurance, you receive an equal amount of accidental death and dismemberment coverage. It provides additional benefits for accidental injuries, including the loss of a limb, eyesight or death due to an accident. A Statement of Health may be required to purchase additional life insurance.
Through our partnership with MetLife, employees enrolled in supplemental life insurance can meet with an attorney to prepare or update a will, living will and power of attorney for the employee and their spouse or domestic partner through MetLife Legal Plans. Employees can also take advantage of WillsCenter.com for free online will preparation service.
Also through MetLife, Cox provides full-time employees with a basic level of long-term disability insurance of 60% of base pay with the option to purchase 66.67% of base pay during enrollment.
Employees who have worked for Cox for at least six months are eligible for short-term disability at no cost.
