Subchapter 005 : Group Life Insurance

(Cite as: 8 V.S.A. § 3810)
  • § 3810. Credit union groups

    The lives of a group of individuals may be insured under a policy issued to a credit union or to the trustees of a fund established by one or more credit unions, which credit union or trustees shall be deemed the policyholder to insure members of such credit union or credit unions for the benefit of persons other than the credit union or credit unions or trustees or any of their officials, subject to the following requirements:

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

    (2) The premium for the policy shall be paid by the policyholder, either wholly from the funds of the credit union or credit unions, or partly from such funds and partly from funds contributed by the insured members specifically for their insurance, or wholly from funds contributed by the insured members specifically for their insurance. A policy on which all or a 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 of each credit union, excluding any as to whom evidence of 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 their 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 25 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 credit union or credit unions. (Added 1967, No. 344 (Adj. Sess.), § 1 (ch. 2, subch. 6, § 10).)
