Basic Life, Voluntary Life and Long-Term Disability

The Standard Insurance

Basic Life

TCA provides Basic Life Insurance policy for all benefit eligible employees at no cost. Employees can purchase a basic term life insurance policy for their spouse and children. Dependents include unmarried child(ren) from live birth through age 24. If the employee elects Dependent life at initial eligibility (gain their first dependent); all of elected dependents are covered. If the employee has a spouse and/or child and did not elect it when gained your first dependent and the employee chooses to elect Dependent Life insurance at a later date, both the spouse and child would need to have Evidence of Insurability (EOI) submitted and be approved before the dependent life could be added.

Voluntary Life

In addition to basic life insurance provided by TCA, employees have the option to buy supplemental (voluntary) life insurance for themselves, spouse or dependent children.

Long-Term Disability (LTD)

TCA provides all eligible employees long-term disability at no cost.

Supplemental Health



TCA made a change to the supplemental health benefits providing more competitive pricing options with Aflac. The plan options will remain the same, but at a lower cost package. We realize you make benefit choices based on what’s important to you and the needs of your changing lifestyle. Therefore, along with our core benefits, we offer these additional benefits which help to provide financial support to employees. Additional benefits include:

  • Accident Care
  • Hospital Indemnity
  • Critical Illness

For those that attend and complete the onsite screenings with Orriant, will automatically receive the Aflac Wellness credit. That’s more money in your pocket!
