Life and Other Special Benefit Insurance

Basic, Optional Life Insurance & Special Benefits Insurance

Wakefield offers a $5,000 basic life insurance policy to all benefit-eligible employees through Boston Mutual at a cost of $1.10 per month to the employee and $3.30 per month to the employer (25 percent / 75 percent premium split).

When you buy basic life insurance, optional life is also available through Boston Mutual and can be calculated using the age/insurance chart on the Boston Mutual Voluntary Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment information sheet below. Optional life premiums are 100% employee paid.

Employees enrolling after 30 days of hire will be required to submit proof of evidentiary insurability. For new hires, enrollment must be within 30 days of hire to avoid proof of evidentiary insurability.

Through our partnership with Mass Municipal Insurance, Wakefield employees are also eligible to enroll in universal life, term life, accident insurance, critical illness, cancer, short-term disability, and long-term disability programs.
