Compulsory Life Insurance Coverage for GSIS Members

Compulsory Life Insurance Coverage for GSIS Members

 

 

GSIS provides two (2) types of compulsory life insurance coverages for its members: the Life Endowment Policy (LEP) and the Enhanced Life Policy (ELP).

  • The GSIS started with the LEP program.  Designed to provide members with life insurance coverage while still in active service, the LEP provides maturity benefits to policy holders upon reaching the maturity of their policy.

 

  • ELP on the other hand took effect last August 1, 2003.  The following members are covered under this program:
  1. Those who entered the service starting August 1, 2003;
  2. Those whose policies matured on or after July 31, 2003, and who will continue to be active members after the maturity date; and
  3. Those who opted or will opt to convert their LEP into ELP.

 

            ELP provides an automatic yearly insurance coverage to new members of GSIS based on their monthly compensation. The objective of ELP is to provide an enhanced death benefit for the member’s family.

The following are the policy features of LEP and ELP:
