If any individual insured under a group life insurance policy delivered in this state
becomes entitled under the terms of such policy to have an individual policy of life
insurance issued to such insured without evidence of insurability, subject to making
application and payment of the first premium within the period specified in such policy,
and if such individual is not given notice of the existence of such right at least
15 days prior to the expiration date of such period, then, in such event the individual
shall have an additional period within which to exercise such right, but, except as
provided in subsection (10) of K.S.A. 40-434, and amendments thereto, nothing contained in this section shall be construed to
continue any insurance beyond the period provided in such policy. The additional period shall expire 15 days next after the individual is given such
notice but in no event shall such additional period extend beyond 60 days next after
the expiration date of the period provided in such policy. Written notice presented to the individual or mailed by the policyholder to the last
known address of the individual or mailed by the insurer to the last known address
of the individual as furnished by the policyholder shall constitute notice for the
purpose of this section.
