CTA Voluntary Group Life Insurance

Protect the ones you love with CTA-endorsed Life Insurance from The Standard

Life Insurance is a key component of any comprehensive financial plan. By including Life Insurance as part of your plan, you help to protect the financial well being of your loved ones in the event of your passing.

But coverage under the CTA-endorsed Life policy does more than help protect your family from financial hardship after a loss. Insured participants have access to additional services that can make a difference now and in the future:

  • Life Services Toolkit – Online tools and services can help insured members create a will, make advance funeral plans and put finances in order. After a loss, beneficiaries can consult experts by phone or in person, and obtain other helpful information online.¹
  • Travel Assistance provides insured members and their families access to a comprehensive range of professional, 24-hour medical, legal and trip assistance information, as well as referral and coordination services. This worldwide assistance service is available to plan participants whenever they are traveling 100 miles or more from home or when traveling in a foreign country for trips up to 180 days.²
