Basic Life Insurance, the MAP & Travel Assistance

Basic Life Insurance 

UnitedHealthcare is the plan administrator for the basic life insurance policy provided to eligible active and retired members effective 7/1/2022.

For basic life insurance death claims where the participant was deceased prior to 7/1/2022 contact The Standard—Customer Service: 1-888-288-1270.

To be eligible for the basic life insurance, you must be covered under the PEBP sponsored medical plan, and be in one of the following classes:

  • Class 1: Full-time employees of the State of Nevada (or any non-State agency approved by the PEBP board), professional full-time employees of the Nevada System of Higher Education (under annual contract), and members of the Nevada Senate or Assembly are all eligible for this benefit. A full-time employee is one who works at least 80 hours per month. Your employer pays the full cost of basic life insurance.
  • Class 2: retirees of the State of Nevada receiving PERS, or judge retirement benefits and legislators qualifying under Chapter 242 of the Sessions Law of the sixty-third Session of the Nevada State Legislature (or NRS 287.045), professional employees qualifying per NAC 287.135, and retirees eligible to join PEBP upon retirement pursuant to NRS 287.023 are eligible for this benefit. Reinstated retirees are not eligible for basic life insurance benefits or voluntary life insurance coverage. Certain retirees pay a contribution toward the cost of basic life insurance.
