Your Family's Passport to Financial Security

Life insurance can be one of the cornerstones of financial planning. In the event of an unexpected or premature death, the ASME Group Term Life Insurance Plan can help provide the financial security your family needs. This life insurance helps make sure they’ll be able to meet current expenses—such as mortgage and car payments—as well as future expenses such as college tuition.

Valuable Benefits

  • Valuable Plan Enhancement: The benefit reduction age for the ASME Group Term Life Plan is now 65. This means the full benefit amount you choose will stay in force until you reach age 65, which helps your coverage keep pace with your family's lifestyle.
  • Up to $1,000,000 of Member and Spouse Coverage (Note: spouse coverage may not exceed 100% of member coverage.)
  • Premium Discounts–25% Premium Discount through April 30, 2021 Now through April 30, 2021, a 25% premium discount will apply to all premium contributions due.
  • Premiums Can Be Waived If You’re Disabled
  • No Exclusions! After coverage is validly in force for two years, benefits are payable for death from any cause, at any time, anywhere in the world. (Subject to U.S. government regulations on restricted countries.)
  • Portable Coverage The Plan offers portable coverage that can follow you throughout your career. Make all the career changes you want and still be able to maintain this valuable protection.

Living Benefit Option ("Accelerated Death Benefit") Enables you to apply for a portion of your benefits if you qualify as being terminally ill, subject to certain policy restrictions and limitations. These benefits are paid directly to you, and you may spend them any way you wish.

Mercer's Role & Compensation

Details of Mercer disclosure of the compensation.


Term Life insurance is one of the most affordable and simplest forms of financial security. If you die, the benefits can help make sure your loved ones will be able to continue to pay current expenses—such as daily living expenses, mortgage and car payments—as well as meet future expenses such as college tuition. Typically, this type of insurance is ideal for single individuals with debt, couples and younger budget-conscious families.
