P3R provides you with Basic & Voluntary Life/AD&D coverage & Long-Term Disability through Guardian. You can also purchase, additional Life Insurance, Accident coverage as well as Short-Term Disability coverage, at your own cost.
Basic Life/AD&D-Employer Paid
Employees working 30 or more hours per week are eligible for $200,000 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.
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-Voluntary
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. Your coverage through Guardian pays 60% of your income to a maximum of $1,500 per week.
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. Benefits begin after a 91 day elimination period and are equal to 60% of covered monthly earnings up to $6,000/month for full-time employees.
Please consult your Employee Benefits Guide and review the benefit summaries for additional details.
The Health Savings Account (HSA) allow you to set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible expenses. By contributing to a HSA you reduce your taxable income, so you pay less in taxes — which saves you money.
To be eligible for an HSA, you must be enrolled in the High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP).
You may contribute as follows:
[$3,850] for a single contract
[$7,750] for a two person or family
