Death Benefit

In the event of the death of a benefits eligible employee, (including faculty or staff), salary will be paid through the last day worked. An additional amount equal to one month’s salary (173.33 hours) will also be paid if death occurs before the commencement of the university’s long-term disability coverage. Final payment will also include any accrued vacation amount due per PLU’s vacation policy. This benefit is provided in addition to the life insurance program maintained by the university.
