Voluntary Group AD&D Insurance

Adding more value to existing coverage

Voluntary group accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance is a simple way for employees to supplement their life insurance coverage with additional protection if they or a family member dies or is dismembered as a result of a covered accident. 

Why offer voluntary AD&D insurance?

Adding a voluntary group AD&D insurance plan to existing employee benefit packages is something employees are demanding. 

For employers, group AD&D is an easy benefit to administer and can add significant value to a comprehensive employee benefits program at a low cost.

AD&D coverage provides employees with an additional layer of financial protection allowing them to adequately purchase enough combined Life and AD&D coverage to protect their family’s financial future. 

How voluntary group AD&D insurance works

Voluntary group AD&D insurance provides additional financial protection if an insured’s death or dismemberment is due to a covered accident, whether it occurs at work or elsewhere. 

What does voluntary group AD&D insurance cover? 

Voluntary group AD&D plans can be added to a benefit package in a variety of ways. 

  • Basic AD&D is employer-paid coverage, which provides an accidental death benefit often equal to an employee’s basic term life insurance amount.
  • Voluntary/Supplemental AD&D offered as employee-paid coverage can be tied to  supplemental life insurance coverage or as a separate, stand-alone election.
  • Dependent AD&D insurance is an employee-paid coverage that provides spouses and children with additional protection. 

Additional features
