Board paid life insurance:

Board paid life insurance is one of the most valuable benefits provided to you by Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS). This benefit enables you to plan for the future and provide security for your family.

You can increase your Board paid life insurance amount by purchasing additional coverage and/or you can apply for dependent life insurance. For further information on how to enroll in these additional benefits please call our on-site MetLife representative at 305-995-7029. It is critical to keep your beneficiary information updated at all times to ensure the most up-to-date information is available at the time that is needed.
