Subchapter 005 : Group Life Insurance

(Cite as: 8 V.S.A. § 3804)
  • § 3804. Labor union groups

    The lives of a group of individuals may be insured under a policy issued to a labor union, which shall be deemed the policyholder, to insure members of such union for the benefit of persons other than the union or any of its officials, representatives, or agents, subject to the following requirements:

    (1) The members eligible for insurance under the policy shall be all of the members of the union, or all of any class or classes thereof determined by conditions pertaining to their employment or to membership in the union, or both.

    (2) The premium for the policy shall be paid by the policyholder, either wholly from the union's funds, or partly from such funds and partly from funds contributed by the insured members specifically for their insurance. No policy may be issued on which the entire premium is to be derived from funds contributed by the insured members specifically for their insurance. A policy on which part of the premium is to be derived from funds contributed by the insured members specifically for their insurance may be placed in force only if at least 75 percent of the then eligible members excluding any as to whom evidence of individual insurability is not satisfactory to the insurer, elect to make the required contributions. A policy on which no part of the premium is to be derived from funds contributed by the insured members specifically for the insurance must insure all eligible members, or all except any as to whom evidence of individual insurability is not satisfactory to the insurer.

    (3) The policy must cover at least 10 members at date of issue.

    (4) The amounts of insurance under the policy must be based upon some plan precluding individual selection either by the members or by the union. (Added 1967, No. 344 (Adj. Sess.), § 1 (ch. 2, subch. 6, § 4).)
