Accidental Death and Dismemberment Plans

Employees covered by Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance Plans

Life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) plans are easy to purchase and can help protect employees and their loved ones in the event of death or dismemberment as a result of a covered accident.

Our highly affordable AD&D plans can be offered standalone, tied to Voluntary Life, and/or added to Basic Life coverage. As an additional benefit, we offer a variety of value-added employee services such as TravelAid1 to help employers protect their employees from a sudden illness or a security incident that occurs while 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
