Who is eligible for this insurance?
MAA members under age 70 may request coverage for themselves, their lawful spouses, and all unmarried dependent children ages 14 days through 22 years (24 if a full–time student). In order to become insured, satisfactory evidence of insurability must be provided and the required premium must be paid.
A dependent who is also an MAA member is eligible for either member or dependent coverage, but not both. If both member and spouse are covered as members, neither may insure the other as spouse, and only one may insure any eligible children.
This coverage is available only for residents of the U.S. (except NC, OR, SD, VT, WA, and territories) and Puerto Rico.
How much insurance can I request?
You can choose the amount you need. A member has options of $10,000.00 to $1,000,000.00 (in multiples of $10,000.00). A lawful spouse may be insured for $10,000.00 to $1,000,000.00 (in multiples of $10,000.00), not to exceed 100% of member’s coverage. Each eligible dependent child may be insured for $10,000.00.
Note: The total amount of coverage an individual may have under all group life insurance policies underwritten by New York Life Insurance Company may not exceed $2,000,000.00. In addition, the total amount of coverage for a member insured by more than one group policy—or more than one organization participating in such a group policy—issued by New York Life Insurance Company to the Trustee of the Engineering Associations Insurance Trust (of which MAA is a participant) may not exceed the maximum benefit option for any insured person.

How does the Accelerated Death Benefit work?
The Living Benefit or "Accelerated Death Benefit" is designed to provide members with the option to have a portion of a terminally ill insured’s life insurance benefit paid while he/she is still alive.
The money received under this feature can be used however you see fit. For example, it can help pay medical bills and other outstanding debts and financial obligations … it can help you keep your savings and assets intact … it can help you maintain your quality of living.
To qualify for this benefit, a person must be insured under this Policy and diagnosed as having a life expectancy of 12 months or less. Proof of terminal illness will consist of a statement from a doctor and any other medical information New York Life Insurance Company believes necessary to confirm the person’s status.
You can request payment equal to 50% of a qualified terminally ill person’s in–force coverage. The request must be made at least 12 months prior to that person’s scheduled coverage termination age, and the amount payable after the insured’s death will be reduced by this payment. (Premium contributions will not be reduced.) If a scheduled reduction will occur within one year of the date the advance payment will be made, the benefit payable will be 50% of the reduced coverage. (See "Amounts of Insurance At Member Ages 60 through 79" in the Insurance Brochure.) Note: An insured will be eligible for only one terminal illness benefit during his/her lifetime.
Please note that receipt of Accelerated Death Benefits may affect your eligibility for public assistance programs and may be taxable. Prior to applying to receive such benefits, you should consult with the appropriate social services agency and seek the advice of a qualified tax advisor.
What if I have second thoughts after I apply?
