AD&D Insurance protects you and your family in case of death, loss of a limb or eyesight, and certain other conditions that result from an accident. If you die from a covered accident, AD&D pays a benefit in addition to your Life Insurance.

You may choose coverage for yourself and your family members. Employee coverage is available for one to five times your annual salary, to a maximum benefit of $1,000,000. Coverage for family members pays a percentage of your benefits.
