Long-term financial security for your loved onesGroup Level Term Life

If something happened to you, how would your family maintain their lifestyle?

older couple with their grandchildDesigned for AOPA members and their busy, active lifestyles, AOPA Level Term Group Life Insurance has no general aviation exclusions—something you may not get from an average policy.

AOPA members and their spouses1 can lock in affordable rates and benefits up to $500,000 for 10 or 20 years—without having to worry about updating their coverage yearly.  The initial premium will not change for the first 10 or 20 years unless the insurance company exercises its right to change premium rates for all insureds covered under the group policy with 60 days advance written notice.  You can trust that your rate is designed to not increase, making it easy to plan and budget from year to year.


Choose either a 10- or 20-year term. It’s your choice based on your age at the time you apply and your family’s needs.

Under age 66 10-year term $50,000 up to $500,000
Under age 56 20-year term $200,000 up to $500,000

Dependent children – Your dependent children age six months to 19 years (or 25 for full-time students) qualify for $5,000 or $10,000 of coverage. Dependent children age 14 days to less than six months qualify for $1,000 or $5,000 of coverage.

Coverage will not reduce during a level term period.  For Members and Spouses1 who are age 70 to 74 at the end of a level term period, coverage will reduce to 50% and from age 75 to 79 coverage is reduced to 25% of the original face amount. Coverage terminates at age 80.

You can use this money any way you wish—to help pay for medical expenses, homemaker services or other expenses. The remainder of your benefit amount will be paid to your beneficiary(ies) after your death. Please note: Receipt of the accelerated benefit may be taxable, or may adversely affect your eligibility for Medicaid or other government benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I need to take a medical exam to obtain coverage

Proof of good health is required for approval of coverage. This may or may not include a medical exam. If an exam is required, it will be performed at your convenience and at no expense to you.

Why would I need this life coverage

Most likely you already have some life insurance—but is it enough and does it cover your aviation activities? Inflation, economic conditions, and lifestyle changes can all eat away at the value of that life insurance. If something happened to you, your current life insurance may not be enough to adequately support your loved ones. AOPA Group Term Life Insurance makes it easy and affordable for you to obtain additional life insurance.

What is the Accelerated Life Benefit

With this benefit, you can collect a portion of your life insurance benefit amount (up to 50%) if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness with less than 12 months to live. You can use your life insurance proceeds to help pay medical or other expenses during this difficult time. Your beneficiary would then receive the remainder of your benefits after your death.

Receipt of the accelerated benefit may be taxable, or may adversely affect your eligibility for Medicaid or other government benefits. You should consult your personal tax advisor to assess the impact of this benefit.

Are there any aviation exclusions under this plan

There are no general aviation exclusions under this plan. Your aviation activities are covered, unlike some life insurance plans that exclude flying in recreational or commercial aircraft.
