Life Insurance and Accidental Death and Dismemberment

Amount of Benefit

  • Life insurance coverage is calculated by taking the employees ‘base pay' x 103% x 2 and rounding to the nearest thousand. The maximum coverage amount is $125,000.
  • Accidental Death & Dismemberment coverage amount is the same as the life insurance coverage amount for death or loss of both hands or both feet, any combination of foot, hand, or sight of one eye or sight of both eyes due to an accident. If the Employee loses one hand, one foot or sight of one eye due to an accident they will receive one-half of their benefit amount.
  • Terminal Illness Benefit coverage amount is between 25% and 75% of your life insurance benefit. This benefit may be available to you if you become terminally ill and have a life expectancy of twelve months or less.
