Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance

The Accidental Death and Dismemberment insurance offers Plan members insurance in the case of an accident. If a student is injured in an accident, the Plan provides him or her with a lump-sum payment. The amount depends on the type of injury he or she sustains. If the accident results in death, the lump-sum amount is paid to the beneficiary(ies) or estate. Members of the Plan are covered 24 hours a day, no matter where in the world the accident occurs. See Plan details for additional benefits that may also be paid.
