supplemental life insurance

The Supplemental Life Insurance Plan permits you to purchase additional life insurance coverage for yourself beyond what is automatically provided by the Chevron Basic Life Insurance Plan. 

  • This coverage is optional; you need to enroll if you want to participate.
  • If you enroll, you’ll pay the full cost of coverage at group rates.
  • This benefit is for employees only; you cannot cover dependents.
If you’re eligible to participate in Chevron's U.S.-payroll health and protection benefits, you're eligible to participate in Supplemental Life Insurance coverage.
  • Assigning Coverage. You can make a gift of your life insurance coverage to one or more people — or to an organization, such as a bank or law firm, that serves as a trustee. If you’re considering assigning your coverage, you should be aware of the personal, legal and tax implications. Review all the rules outlined the Plan’s summary plan description and consult with your attorney. Contact the HR Service Center if you need to assign coverage.
  • Accelerated Benefit Option. You can request an accelerated payment of Plan benefits if you’re terminally ill and meet other eligibility requirements to receive an accelerated benefit. Review the Plan’s summary plan description or contact the Plan’s insurer for more information.
  • Will Preparation Service. Face-to-face and telephone consultations for preparing and updating a will, living will and power of attorney is included with your Supplemental Life Insurance coverage. Learn more.
  • Funeral Discount and Planning Services. Funeral discount and planning services are included with your Supplemental Life Insurance coverage at no additional cost to you. Learn more.

The plan's summary plan description and other key plan documents are included below, later on this page.
