Life Insurance Overview

Life insurance provides valuable financial protection for your family, or anyone else, who may depend on your income. Life insurance coverage is also available for your spouse and dependent children. The program is insured by MetLife.

Careful life insurance planning may include the following:

  • Determining the appropriate amount of coverage you need.
  • Making sure that you have chosen beneficiaries to receive benefits should something happen to you.
  • Reviewing your beneficiary elections so that they keep up with events in your life (marriage, children, divorce, etc.).
  • Ensuring that you have a will (or other instructions) to guarantee your wishes are carried out. Hyatt Legal Services (a MetLife company) offers will preparation and estate resolution services to employees who are enrolled in Pearson’s Supplemental Life Insurance plan.
