Accidental Death and Dismemberment Plans

Group discussing Accidental Death and Dismemberment Plans

Our highly affordable Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) plans can be offered standalone, tied to Voluntary Life, and/or added to Basic Life insurance plans. As an additional benefit, TravelAid1 services can be added to our Basic and/or Voluntary Life coverage to protect employees if a sudden illness or security incident occurs while they are away from home.

Guardian offers two types of AD&D insurance for employee only or family coverage:

Standard AD&D Enhanced AD&D
Standard AD&D provides traditional coverage for specific accidental losses without common carrier benefits. Enhanced AD&D provides traditional AD&D coverage with common carrier benefits and the following additional benefits:
  • Catastrophic Loss
  • Seatbelt and Airbag
  • Repatriation
  • Day Care Expense
  • Child Education
  • Spousal Education & Retraining
