Dear Members,

I am pleased to announce that a new life insurance program will be made available to you as an added benefit.

This whole life product, VPL-plus, features guaranteed cash value, guaranteed level premium, and guaranteed reduced paid-up life insurance1,2. Most policies will be issued under Express Issue based upon answers to three health and work-related questions. Coverage is available for you, your spouse/domestic partner, children, and grandchildren3. Premiums will be paid through the convenience of payroll deduction; there’s no need to write any checks. You will own the policy and can take it with you should you retire or switch careers.

Keep in mind that the application process will begin soon, and your participation is voluntary. You will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with an insurance professional who will answer any questions you may have about this product and its benefits to you and your family.

MetLife representative Michael Testo will visit Troop Headquarters and all Zone Headquarters so all members have an opportunity to meet with him. He will be available from 6:30 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. on each of the following dates below:

Zone 1 – Tarrytown:               August 22nd & August 24th

Zone 2 – Albany:                   August 23rd & August 25th

We trust this added life insurance benefit will be helpful to you and your family. If you need to contact Michael Testo you may do so at 518-209-4124.

3Coverage and spouse/domestic partner eligibility may vary by state. MetLife complies with all State laws regarding marriages, domestic and civil union partnerships, and legally recognized familial relationships. Age limitations may apply for children and grandchildren.
