GIC Health Insurance

If the employee had health insurance coverage through the GIC at the time of death, the surviving spouse is eligible to continue his/her GIC health insurance coverage until s/he remarries or dies. The surviving spouse must apply for survivor spouse coverage, as it is not an automatic benefit.

To apply, the surviving spouse must contact the GIC and provide a copy of the death certificate. Upon approval, the GIC will directly bill the surviving spouse for his/her share of the health insurance premium. If eligible dependents are covered under the health plan at the time of death, they can continue GIC coverage up to age 26.
