LIFE & DISABILITY

Lincoln Financial Group (LFG)

Futuramic provides you with financial protection options for life, accidental death & dismemberment, short term disability and long term disability with LFG.


Life/AD&D

Employer Provided - $25,000 Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment Insurance


Voluntary: A sudden accident or death can leave you or your loved ones in a vulnerable position. Employees have the opportunity to enroll in Term Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment insurance which will supplement lost income in the event of an accident or death. If you choose to enroll in employee coverage, this will be in addition to your employer provided Basic Life coverage.


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 - You pay a portion of this

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 - Employer Paid

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.
