LIFE & DISABILITY

Unum

Smile Partner's provides you with financial protection options for life, accidental death & dismemberment, short term disability and long term disability with Unum.


Life/AD&D

A sudden accident or death can leave you or your loved ones in a vulnerable position. Smile Partner's provides all eligible employees with a $25,000 benefit. Employees also have the opportunity to enroll in voluntary Term Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment insurance which will supplement lost income in the event of an accident or death.


All new eligible employees may enroll up to the guarantee issue amount with no evidence of insurability. If you do not enroll at this time you will be required to submit Evidence of Insurability for Unum to review and determine whether you will be approved for coverage at a later date.


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. Please note, if you do not elect coverage at the time of your new hire enrollment, you will be subject to evidence of insurability if you choose to enroll at a later date.


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 note, if you do not elect coverage at the time of your new hire enrollment, you will be subject to evidence of insurability if you choose to enroll at a later date.


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