Accidental Death & Dismemberment
Optional accidental death and dismemberment insurance pays a benefit if you die as a result of an accident or suffer a qualifying injury in an accident. This benefit does not provide coverage due to illness. Evidence of insurability is not required.
Accidental death and dismemberment insurance will pay a percentage of the insurance to you if you sustain certain injuries in an accident. Eligible injuries usually involve dismemberment (loss of a limb, toe or finger) or permanent loss of use, such as paralysis or vision loss. For a list of qualifying injuries, please see the Flexible Benefits Guide (PDF, 3.1MB).
In the event of your death, the designated beneficiary for this benefit payment is the same as that for your basic life insurance, unless otherwise specified. In the event of your spouse or child’s death, you are the beneficiary. In the event of an eligible injury to yourself, your spouse or child, you are the beneficiary.
You may elect this insurance during initial enrolment, during open enrolment, or when updating your benefit choices as a result of an eligible life event. If you do not select an option you will default to "waive" (no coverage). For details, see Benefits for Excluded Employees.
For information on coverage, see the Flexible Benefits Guide.
