Basic Life Insurance

UnitedHealthcare is the plan administrator for the basic life insurance policy provided to eligible active and retired members effective 7/1/2022.

For basic life insurance death claims where the participant was deceased prior to 7/1/2022 contact The Standard—Customer Service: 1-888-288-1270.

To be eligible for the basic life insurance, you must be covered under the PEBP sponsored medical plan, and be in one of the following classes:

  • Class 1: Full-time employees of the State of Nevada (or any non-State agency approved by the PEBP board), professional full-time employees of the Nevada System of Higher Education (under annual contract), and members of the Nevada Senate or Assembly are all eligible for this benefit. A full-time employee is one who works at least 80 hours per month. Your employer pays the full cost of basic life insurance.
  • Class 2: retirees of the State of Nevada receiving PERS, or judge retirement benefits and legislators qualifying under Chapter 242 of the Sessions Law of the sixty-third Session of the Nevada State Legislature (or NRS 287.045), professional employees qualifying per NAC 287.135, and retirees eligible to join PEBP upon retirement pursuant to NRS 287.023 are eligible for this benefit. Reinstated retirees are not eligible for basic life insurance benefits or voluntary life insurance coverage. Certain retirees pay a contribution toward the cost of basic life insurance.

Basic Life Insurance Benefits Effective 7/1/2023


Basic Life Insurance Class 1 (Employee) Class 2 (Retiree)
State Active/Retiree $25,000 $12,500
Non-State Active/Retiree $15,000 $7,500

State Actives/Retirees are those whose last employer is a State agency, NSHE, PERS, the Legislature, Legislative Counsel Bureau or a State Board or Commission. Non-State Actives/Retirees are those whose last employer is a non-State public entity (a local government that is contracted with PEBP to provide coverage to their active employees pursuant to NRS 287.025). Non-State retirees are eligible to join PEBP only if their last employer is a participating local government entity (a local government that is contracted with PEBP to provide coverage to their active employees pursuant to NRS 287.025). If the participating local government entity leaves the PEBP Plan, the entity’s retirees will also be dis-enrolled unless the retiree was covered under PEBP as a retiree continually since November 30, 2008. Retirees who were covered under PEBP as a retiree on November 30, 2008, and continually since then may remain covered under PEBP if they continue to pay their premiums.
