Life Insurance for Members

Future financial security for your loved ones. Resources for you today.

Coverage is available through employer-provided plans only. Not available for individual sale.

No one can replace you. But life insurance coverage can give your family the security they need when you're gone. It can help pay for:

  • Funeral costs
  • Daily expenses
  • College tuition

Our plans also offer features that can help you today.

Your employer may offer Aetna life insurance plans. This is called group term insurance or group coverage. These plans provide coverage for you, your spouse or partner and your dependent children.

Coverage for members

If you die or have a serious injury, our life and accidental death and personal loss coverages pay cash to your loved ones.

Coverage for loved ones

What if your spouse or partner or child dies or is badly injured? This can mean financial hardship for you and your family. These plans can help.

More than just a quick claim payout

Even while you are living, our life insurance plans are looking out for you. For example:

We make it easy to file a life insurance claim

In most states, your beneficiary- the person you choose to receive the cash payment after your death- can call us to file a claim. Or call us to find out the status of a claim at 1-800-523-5065, Monday through Friday,  8 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET.

Your beneficiaries may also ask your employer to file the claim for them.

We will need:


A certified copy of your death certificate.


Eligibility information and signed beneficiary records from your employer.


Police or fire reports from the investigating agency if your death is caused by an accident.

We usually pay life claims within 10 to 15 business days. Claims when there is an accident can take longer.
