The Group Universal Life (GUL) Insurance provides life insurance coverage at affordable group rates and offers members an opportunity to set aside sums of money in a Cash Accumulation Fund (CAF), which earns tax-deferred interest*. Active members under age 70 are also eligible for Accidental Death & Dismemberment Insurance coverage.
GUL is optional and is paid for entirely by member contributions.
The insurance is portable so long as the group contract is in force and once you have enrolled as an active member, can be continued at group rates into retirement or when membership in the Fund ends for any reason.
GUL is insured with The Prudential Insurance Company of America (Prudential). Additional information and assistance can be obtained by calling Prudential's customer service center at (800) 562-9874.
Current MBF Members enrolled in GUL can access the GUL self service site at www.prudential.com/mybenefits to obtain information and make changes to beneficiaries and CAF elections. (Login using your previously created User ID and Password. If you have not previously created a User ID and Password, select “Register Now” and enter 24768 in the Control Number field. Follow the instructions to create a personal User ID and password.)
New MBF Members (within 90 days of becoming eligible for GUL) will receive a welcome letter directly from Prudential with instructions on how to enroll in GUL.
* Prudential Life Insurance Company establishes the CAF interest rate for each calendar year. The rate is guaranteed never to be less than 4%.
