DID YOU KNOW?
BASIC LIFE INSURANCE
Life insurance is an important part of your financial security. Life insurance helps protect your family from financial risk and sudden loss of income in the event of your death. AD&D insurance is equal to your Life benefit in the event of your death being a result of an accident, and may also pay benefits for certain injuries sustained.
Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D)
Employees have the opportunity to enroll in supplemental Life insurance. If you choose to enroll in employee coverage, this will be in addition to your employer provided Basic Life coverage. Coverage is also available for your spouse and/or child dependents. It is typically required that you elect coverage for yourself in order to be eligible for coverage on your dependents.
Choose in $10,000 increments up to the lesser of 5x your annual salary or $200,000
Choose in $5,000 increments up to the lesser of 100% of the amount you elect for yourself or $100,000
Choose in $2,000 increments up to $10,000
SHORT-TERM DISABILITY (STD)
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 (LTD)
Serious illnesses or accidents can come out of nowhere. They 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.
Critical Illness Insurance
How would you pay your bills if you were suddenly diagnosed with cancer and couldn’t work? Critical illness insurance doesn't pay your medical bills. It pays you if you’re diagnosed with a covered illness. The benefit is paid directly to you and is your choice how to spend it.
What is the Cost of Critical Illness Insurance?
Depending on your age, and how much coverage you want, the cost of critical illness insurance can vary significantly
A serious injury can cost you a lot of money – not only in medical bills but in things like income from lost work hours. Some injuries are minor, but others are debilitating and require significant medical care. If you get hurt, accident insurance pays you money that you can use to cover personal expenses, bills, and out-of-pocket medical costs.
Who Gets Paid?
You get paid. When you have a covered accident or injury, your health insurance company pays your doctor or hospital, but your accident insurance company pays you.
Not all accidents are “qualifying injuries.” The kinds of accidents that are covered can vary by plan, but accident insurance plans typically cover things like:
-Emergency Room Visits
-Emergency Helicopter Transportation
-Hospital Admissions & Per Diem Charges
-Intensive Care &Rehabilitation Unit Care
