     Your BENEFlex life insurance program includes:
    • Basic Employee Term Life
    • Optional Employee Term Life
    • Optional Dependent Term Life (Spouse & Child[ren])
    • Optional Family Term Life

    Pinellas County Schools provides Basic Employee Term Life insurance coverage -through The Standard- of one times your annual base salary, rounded up to the next $1000, with minimum coverage of $15,000.  For example:

    Beneficiary Information

    A beneficiary is the person or entity who will receive the benefit in the event of your death.  You may choose more than one beneficiary and designate them as primary or secondary beneficiaries.  Your primary beneficiary is the first in line to receive your death benefit.  If the primary beneficiary dies before you, a secondary beneficiary is next in line.  Both primary and secondary beneficiaries must equal 100%.
    To change or update your beneficiary information, you must complete an Enrollment & Change form and submit it to Risk Management:
