WAEPA members have two ways to purchase life insurance coverage for family members.
Dependents can be added to your insurance policy.
Cover your eligible spouse and your dependent children under your own insurance certificate.
Dependent Children under the age of 19, or up to age 26 if they are unmarried, and primarily supported by you are eligible.
Spouse - $10,000 to $500,000 of coverage
Children - $1,000 to $25,000 of coverage
Chronic Illness Rider
An economical way to help protect yourself from the financial hardship a chronic illness may cause.
Dependents can join WAEPA – and get their own coverage.
Your eligible spouse can join WAEPA as an Associate Member...and apply for up to $1.5million in benefits, just like any other member of WAEPA.
Associate members must be age 18 or older, and less than age 70 at time of application, and must possess U.S. citizenship. Full-time members of the Armed Forces are not eligible for Associate Membership.
$25,000 to $1.5million of coverage
This rider is not intended to be a federally tax-qualified long-term care insurance contract under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 7702B. Therefore, the premiums payable for this rider do not qualify as long-term care insurance premiums and are not deductible from gross income for federal income tax purposes. This rider, however, is subject to the federal per diem limits set forth in IRC 7702B. Under this rider, New York Life will not pay clients more than the federal per diem limits. If the benefit option elected exceeds the current IRC per diem limits, the benefit period will be extended accordingly. Clients should consult with their tax advisors to determine the impact of accelerating more than the maximum per diem benefit under IRC 7702B.
Receipt of an accelerated death benefit may affect client eligibility for Medicaid or other government benefits or entitlements and may have income tax consequences. Accelerating benefits before applying for these programs, or while you are receiving government benefits, may affect your initial or continued eligibility. Clients can contact the appropriate social service agency (e.g., the Medicaid Unit of you local Department of Public Welfare or the Social Security Administration Office) for more information.
