If you should die while employed by WHOI, the Institution will automatically pay $2,500 to your spouse or closest next of kin. This benefit helps pay for unexpected expenses that often occur at this time. This benefit continues after you retire from active service and are age 65 with at least 10 years of service, or under age 65 with at least 20 years of service. (Employees who retired prior to July 1, 1982, are not covered by this benefit.)

For more information about this benefit, please refer to the official Policy (under Section IV of the Survivor Benefits Program Policy).
