Accidental Death and Dismemberment

How much AD&D coverage do I have?
The amount of the AD&D benefit is equal to one times your basic annual earnings up to a maximum benefit amount of $100,000.  The AD&D benefit is available only to associates.
Your coverage amount will be rounded up to the next higher $500.  (Example: If your annual salary income is $20,204.00, your benefit amount would be rounded up to $20,500.00 for the AD&D).

NOTE:  Accidental death or dismemberment by accidental injury as used in this supplement means that your death or dismemberment results, directly and independently of all other causes, from an accidental injury which is unintended, unexpected, and unforeseen.
What do I pay for the AD&D benefit?
The AD&D benefit is a company paid benefit (there is no cost to associates).

Who will be the beneficiary for my AD&D Insurance?
Please make sure that you have a primary beneficiary listed for your AD&D.  You can add a primary beneficiary or make changes to your primary beneficiary information by going through ShawAndMe.
