Legal - Continuing Coverage

In the event your coverage ceased due to termination of employment, reduction in hours, or your death, the Administrative Office will send a termination notice.  You will have 60 days from the date of notification to elect to continue coverage.

Effective January 1, 2018, coverage can be continued by "self-paying" for up to 36 months following the last month you were eligible through your employer or hour bank.  As of January 1, 2001, retirees may continue their coverage under the retiree provision if they meet the eligibility requirements. 

 To "self-pay", contact the Administrative Office in order to determine your monthly premium and length of time that you may self-pay.  After your initial self-payment, subsequent payments need to be submitted to the Administrative Office by the first of each month that you wish to have coverage.  There is a 30 day grace period; however, payment will not be accepted after the 30 days or the end of  the month, whichever is later. Your self-pay coverage will end.  Once coverage has ended you may not resume self-pay  until eligibility has been re-established under the Plan through your employer.

Self pay coverage for you will cease on the date any of the following occurs:

  • the Alaska Electrical Legal Fund ceases to provide group legal coverage;
  • self-pay coverage premiums are due and unpaid;
  • an individual re-establishes eligibility under the Plan through their employer;
  • at the end of 36 months of self-pay coverage.
