LIFE & DISABILITY

Unum

Whitesell Corporation provides you with financial protection options for life, accidental death & dismemberment, short term disability and long term disability with Mutual of Omaha.


Life/AD&D

A sudden accident or death can leave you or your loved ones in a vulnerable position. Whitesell Corporation provides eligible employees a Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment benefit of 2 times your basic annual earnings up to $500,000 at no cost to you.


Employees also have the opportunity to enroll in voluntary/supplemental Term Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment insurance which will supplement lost income in the event of an accident or death. Eligible employees and spouses may elect up to the Guarantee Issue Amount with no Evidence of Insurability (EOI) if you elect during your initial new hire enrollment window. If you do not elect during your new hire enrollment window, you will be required to submit EOI for underwriting review.


Who's Your Beneficiary? Naming a beneficiary is a crucial part of electing life insurance. Also, don't forget to update your primary or secondary beneficiary if you experience a life event, such as a divorce or birth of a child.


Short Term Disability

Everyday illnesses or injuries can interfere with your ability to work. Even a few weeks away from work can make it difficult to manage household costs. Short Term Disability coverage provides financial protection for you by paying a portion of your income, so you can focus on getting better and worry less about keeping up with your bills. If you do not elect the Short Term Disability benefits during your initial new hire enrollment, you will be required to submit Evidence of Insurability for underwriting review.


Long Term Disability

Serious illnesses or accidents can interrupt your life, and your ability to work for months – even years. Long Term Disability provides financial protection for you by paying a portion of your income, so you have financial support to manage your disability and your household. If you do not elect the Long Term Disability benefits during your initial new hire enrollment, you will be required to submit Evidence of Insurability for underwriting review.


Please consult your Employee Benefits Guide and review the benefit summaries for additional details.
