What do I do with the Life Insurance after I left my job?
I just left my old job for my new job 2 weeks ago. I received a letter from my old job's HR saying that my group (life) insurance has been discontinued and ask me if I want to convert it to an individual policy. The thing is I'm not so sure how things work. My new job also offers me this, but not until 4 months later. What do people normally do with their group life insurance when they left their job? Should I convert it to an individual policy or to my new job after 4 months if possible or can I cash that life insurance amount?
