Cost Calculation Examples:
If your eligible bonus is $25,000, your coverage option is 100% and you are age 37, your cost is:
  • $25,000 ÷ 12 months = $2,083.33 × 0.1470% = $3.06 per semi-monthly paycheck
  • $25,000 ÷ 12 months = $2,083.33 × 0.0678% = $1.41 per weekly paycheck
If your eligible bonus is $300,000, your coverage option is 50% and you are age 45, your cost is:
  • $150,000 ÷ 12 months = $12,500 × 0.2835% = $35.44 per semi-monthly paycheck
  • $150,000 ÷ 12 months = $12,500 × 0.1308% = $16.35 per weekly paycheck
