ACCIDENTAL DEATH & DISMEMBERMENT (AD&D)
Members have Accidental Death & Dismemberment insurance automatically included as part of their annual dues.
You are covered for injury sustained as the result of an accident anywhere in the world ‑ 24 hours per day ‑ on or off the job.
Accidental Death & Dismemberment provides up to $25,000 in case of a loss of body part due to accident and a $25,000 benefit to your beneficiary or estate in case of death.
If you are injured and require medical treatment within 30 days of the accident, you could be eligible for Accidental Medical Reimbursement Benefits. This includes
the cost of an ambulance, semi-private hospital room, physiotherapy, prescription medication, splints, crutches, canes, braces, chiropractor, etc.
You should complete a Beneficiary Form if you wish the benefits to go to someone other than your estate in the event of your death. Keep this in mind when you there are major life events – marriage, birth of a child, etc.
