    3. The Bankers invoice is paid a month in advance. Your deduction will stop the last pay period of the month you request if the invoice has not been paid for the following month. If the invoice has been paid for the following month then your deduction will stop the last pay period of the following month after your request.

    EXAMPLE ONE: Turn your request in to HR mid-March. If the Bankers invoice has not been paid for April your deduction will stop the last pay period of March.

    EXAMPLE TWO: Turn your request in to HR mid-March. If the Bankers invoice has already been paid for April your deductions will stop the last pay period of April.

    4. You will also need to call Banker's Life yourself to cancel since it is an individual policy.
