ENROLLMENT PERIOD: October 1 – November 15, 2013

HSTA VEBA Trust is offering active HSTA members an opportunity to enroll for Critical Illness
Insurance (CII) from MetLife. You can enroll for $15,000 or $30,000 of coverage for yourself,
spouse and dependent children. Coverage is guaranteed provided the member is actively at work.

CII can help protect you from the unanticipated costs of a serious illness such as cancer, heart
attack or stroke. Despite having comprehensive medical and disability income insurance, many
costs may still not be covered like travel expenses and unplanned childcare.

If you are diagnosed with one of the covered conditions and meet the policy and certificate
requirements, CII will provide a lump-sum payment that can be used as you see fit. For example,
if your illness results in a disability leave, the CII lump-sum payment could help narrow the gap
between your reduced income and the increased out-of-pocket expenses often associated with a
critical illness – use it to help pay your mortgage, car payments or utilities. And the cost for CII
may be less than you think.
