§ 38.2-3333

Right to individual policy upon termination of group policy or elimination of class of insured persons

Each group life insurance policy shall contain a provision that if the group policy terminates or is amended so as to terminate the insurance of any class of insured persons, every person, other than a minor child insured pursuant to § 38.2-3323, whose insurance terminates and who has been insured for at least five years prior to the termination date shall be entitled to have the insurer issue him an individual life insurance policy. The individual life policy shall be subject to the conditions and limitations set forth in § 38.2-3332. However, the group policy may contain a provision that the amount of the individual policy shall not exceed the smaller of (i) the amount of the person’s life insurance protection ceasing because of the termination or amendment of the group policy, less the amount of any life insurance for which he is or becomes eligible under any group policy issued or reinstated by the same or another insurer within 31 days after the termination, or (ii) $ 10,000.
