How much life insurance do I need?
Some insurance experts suggest that you purchase life insurance equal to five to nine times your current income. In addition, you should consider how much your dependents will need to maintain their lifestyle.

Who is eligible for this insurance?
APSIT Group Insurance Program participants and their lawful spouses under age 65 may apply. Also, all unmarried dependent children ages 14 days through 22 years (24 if a full-time student). In order to become insured, satisfactory evidence of insurability must be provided and the required premium must be paid.

A dependent who is also an APSIT Group Insurance Program participant is eligible for either participant or dependent coverage, but not both. If both participant and spouse are covered as participants, neither may insure the other as spouse, and only one may insure any eligible children.
