The Internal Revenue Code requires that premiums for basic life insurance in excess of $50,000 will be included as taxable income at the close of each tax year. This may impact your tax status. You may wish to check with your tax advisor if you are concerned.

Please be sure to log into the Workterra online benefit website to designate your beneficiary. You may change this designation at any time by simply logging back into Workterra and assigning somebody new. Login instructions can be found in the health benefits section.
