BACKGROUND INFORMATION

 

Previous Commission action/date:  N/A

 

Background:  During the February 5, 2019, Baldwin County Regular Meeting, Lincoln Financial Group was approved to be the vendor for Life, AD&D, STD and LTD for the Baldwin County Commission retroactively beginning January 1, 2019, and effective for one year.  This coverage is up for renewal starting January 1, 2020, and Cobbs Allen obtained quotes and brought to the Commission the lowest renewal rate with comparable benefits.  This coverage was up for renewal and Cobbs Allen obtained quotes and brought to the Commission the lowest renewal rate with comparable benefits.  This will result in an increase in cost for County sponsored Life, AD&D and Long-Term Disability in the amount of approximately $14,519.00.  Rates will decrease for Short-Term Disability, Voluntary Life, and Vision insurances.
