  • Life Insurance

    Life insurance is a critical component of financial planning and is used to support your loved ones in the event of your death. Basic life insurance is employer-paid. This policy also includes Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D). AD&D insurance provides benefits to you or your beneficiary if you suffer loss of life or limb due to an accident. AD&D is considered “double indemnity” which means that if your death is due to an accident, your beneficiary would receive double the life insurance benefit. Your basic life insurance policy is equal to one time your annual salary up to a maximum of $300,000.


    • Basic Life: One times annual earnings
    • Accidental Death and Dismemberment: One times annual earnings
    • Supplemental Life: One, two or three times annual (voluntary coverage). Each coverage option is limited to a maximum of $300,000.
  • Long Term Disability

    Disability benefits are designed to provide income replacement in case you are unable to work due to an illness and/or injury. Long-term disability benefits are offered at no cost to you. You also have the option to purchase additional LTD coverage. Details on disability benefits are provided here.
