LIFE & DISABILITY

Venture Outdoors provides you with Life/AD&D Insurance coverage as well as Short-Term and Long-Term Disability through Reliance Standard.


Basic Life/AD&D

Employees working 30 or more hours per week are eligible for Life Insurance coverage payable to your designated beneficiary in the event of your death. An additional accidental death & dismemberment benefit (AD&D) is payable to you in the event of a covered dismemberment or to your beneficiary if your death is the result of an accident.


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.


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. 


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