Life and Long Term Disability Insurance Benefits

USM contracted with MetLife as the Life Insurance and Long Term Disability (LTD) Insurance carrier for employees and their covered dependents.

Regular or CII – Contingent II employees can enroll in these USM-sponsored benefits within 60 days of hire or a qualifying life event.

The benefits are administered on the GIS / Boon-Chapman platform and are SEPARATE from the State-sponsored benefits offered through the State of Maryland.

Enroll or review your USM-sponsored coverage information

Regular or CII – Contingent II employees can enroll in these USM-sponsored benefits. If you are already enrolled, you can access your coverage information at any time.

Click the button below to log into the MetLife Benefits portal on the GIS / Boon-Chapman platform.

Your user ID will be your W-number (no dashes or spaces) and your initial PIN/password is the last four digits of your W-number + your four-digit birth year. This will be reset annually prior to annual enrollment in February.

For example, if your W-number is W0123456 and you were born in 1977, your user ID would be W0123456 and your PIN/password would be 34561977.
