Accidental Death Insurance
HOW IT WORKS
Pays your loved ones money if you die from an accident.
Why do you need accidental death insurance?
Consider accidental death insurance if you're looking for an affordable alternative to life insurance, if you want to supplement your current life insurance coverage, or if you're unable to qualify for life insurance due to medical reasons. It can do more than replace a lost income – it can pay for final expenses, a mortgage and more.
To prepare for the unexpected
What if your family suddenly lost your income? The money from accidental death insurance can help keep life moving if you die from an accident.
For peace of mind
Accidental death insurance helps your family keep up with some of the most important things in life—like mortgage or rent, childcare, college tuition and more.
How much accidental death insurance do you need?
Accidents are unexpected, by definition. To figure out how much accidental death insurance is right for your family, consider how much they would need if they lost your income with no time to prepare.
Know the odds
Accidental death may not seem very likely, but it happens more often than you may think for people in certain age groups, jobs, and lifestyles. And no matter the odds, this insurance is an affordable way to plan ahead should the unexpected happen to you. Consider this:
- Accidents are the leading cause of death for people age 44 or younger in the United States.1
- People who work outdoors, in manufacturing, construction, or other hands-on jobs can be more at risk for accidents—and may not be able to qualify for traditional life insurance.
What would your family need?
If you’re like most Americans, your monthly budget probably doesn’t leave as much room for the unforeseen as you’d like. Without your income, what would your family need to keep daily living expenses covered and long-term plans on track? How would they cover:
- Essentials like groceries and childcare
- Mortgage or rent
- Utility and phone bills
- Regular loan or car payments
- Planning ahead for children's education or retirement
Key features of accidental death insurance
Accidental death insurance provides money to your family to help them manage without your income should the unexpected happen.
Benefits add up
Accidental death benefits are paid directly to your family or other beneficiary. The money doesn't take the place of any life insurance or other compensation your beneficiaries are entitled to—it's paid in addition to other benefits you may have in place.
Easy application, protection starts right away
You won’t need a medical exam. After we receive your application, most policies will be issued within two business days and you’ll be covered.
Optional disability income protection
If an injury leaves you unable to work, the loss of your income can quickly drain savings. The Accident Only Disability Income Rider is an affordable option you can buy with your policy—and secure an income if you suffer a total disability caused by an accident.
