Accidental Death & Dismemberment Insurance**

Let's Take This Into Account

Accidental death and dismemberment insurance offers low cost supplemental coverage that provides benefits in the event of an accidental death or dismemberment (including family members for one low group rate). This insurance also gives Guaranteed Issue to all new full-time employees, but coverage is not convertible upon elimination of employment or retirement.

How We Can Provide Everyday Guidance

We've heard the saying, "As soon as you walk outside the door of your home, something bad can happen." Sure, such a phrase is common speech, but having the security of Accidental & Dismemberment Insurance from Gabor is a big piece of the puzzle that can keep you in good standing should an unfortunate incident occur. This plan entails:

  • The program is offered Guaranteed Issue to all new full-time employees and coverage is not convertible upon elimination of employment or retirement.
  • You may also add family coverage for one low group rate.
  • Coverage is 24 hours a day, on or off the job. This includes emergency travel assistance coverage while an insured employee is traveling more than 100 miles from their home either on business or for pleasure.
  • **Underwritten by Standard Insurance Company.**

  • AD&D insurance is available in units of $1,000, from a minimum of $1,000 to a maximum of $350,000.
