17B:27-71 Extension to dependents of group life insurance policy.
4. Except for a policy issued under subsection b. of section 1 of this act, a group life insurance policy may be extended to insure the employees or members against loss due to the death of their spouses, domestic partners and dependent children, and any other persons dependent upon the insured employees or members, or any class thereof, subject to the following:
a. The premium for the insurance shall be remitted by the policyholder either from funds contributed by the employer, union, association or other person to whom the policy has been issued, or from funds contributed by the covered persons, or from both. Except as provided in subsection b. of section 1 of this act, a policy on which no part of the premium for the spouse's, domestic partner's, dependent child's and other dependent's coverage is to be derived from funds contributed by the covered persons shall insure all eligible employees or members with respect to their spouses, domestic partners, dependent children and other dependents, or any class thereof.
b. An insurer may exclude or limit the coverage on any spouse, domestic partner, dependent child or any other person dependent upon the insured employee or member as to whom evidence of individual insurability is not satisfactory to the insurer.
c. The amounts of insurance for any covered spouse, domestic partner, dependent child or any other person dependent upon the insured employee or member under the policy may not exceed 100% of the amount of insurance for which the employee or member is insured.
