Accidental Death and Dismemberment

SLPC 25092 11/15 (exp. 11/17)

Keep a life-changing event from changing your family’s financial health.

Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) insurance provides extra financial protection if you or your dependents suffer from a covered accidental injury or accidental death.

How does it work?

AD&D insurance pays you or your beneficiary benefits if you suffer an injury or death as the result of a covered accidental injury. The amount of AD&D coverage often matches the amount of Life insurance you elect, though your plan may allow you to choose a different amount. Depending on your plan, you may be able to sign up for an amount based on your salary (for example, two times your salary) or choose a set dollar amount.

What’s covered?

If you suffer a covered accidental injury or death, your AD&D insurance will provide you or your beneficiary with a payment based on your coverage amount. The following list shows potential benefit amounts for losses due to accidental injuries assuming you have $10,000 of coverage:

Losses due to accidental injury The plan pays Your potential benefit
Speech and hearing 100% $10,000
Quadriplegia 100% $10,000
Paraplegia 75% $7,500
Loss of sight in one eye 50% $5,000
Speech only 50% $5,000
Hearing only 50% $5,000
Loss of limb (arm or leg) 50% $5,000
Thumb and index finger 25% $2,500

The maximum amount payable for losses resulting from any one accident is 100%. In the event that a covered accident results in your death, your beneficiary will receive 100% of your AD&D coverage amount.

You can’t predict the future, but you can plan for it with AD&D insurance so you and your finances are protected in the event of a covered accidental injury or death.
