Life and AD&D


Basic Life & AD&D Insurance

Associates are provided a company-paid group life and accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance . The benefit coverage is equal to $100,000. Additionally, life insurance is paid and provided for spouses at $10,000 and child(ren) at $5,000 each. Children must be 6 months old to receive the full benefit.

Voluntary Life & AD&D Insurance

Associates who want to supplement their group life insurance benefits may purchase additional coverage for themselves, a spouse and covered dependents. All enrollments by current associates who do not elect during their initial New Hire enrollment would be required to complete an Evidence Of Insurability (EOI) . Likewise, any amount elected over the Guarantee Issue amount is subject to the EOI. The EOI can be accessed electronically here.
