The group life insurance policy must contain a provision that if the insurance, or any portion of it, on a person covered under the policy ceases because of termination of employment or of membership in the class or classes eligible for coverage under the policy, the person shall be entitled to have issued to the person by the insurer, without evidence of insurability, an individual policy of life insurance without health insurance or other supplementary benefits, provided application for the individual policy is made, and the first premium paid to the insurer, within 31 days after the termination, and provided further that

(1) the individual policy shall, at the option of the person, be on any one of the forms, except term insurance, then customarily issued by the insurer at the age and for the amount applied for;

(2) the amount of the individual policy may not be in excess of the amount of life insurance that ceases because of the termination, less the amount of any life insurance for which the person is or becomes eligible under the same or any other group policy within 31 days after the termination, provided that any amount of insurance that matured on or before the date of the termination as an endowment payable to the person insured, whether in one sum or in installments or in the form of annuity, may not, for the purpose of this provision, be included in the amount that is considered to cease because of the termination;

(3) the premium on the individual policy shall be at the insurer's then customary rate applicable to the form and amount of the individual policy, to the class of risk to which the person then belongs, and to the person's age attained on the effective date of the individual policy.
