Life & AD&D

Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) insurance, through Unum, provide financial security to you and your family if you become seriously injured or pass away.

Basic Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D)

Providing economic security for your family if you pass away, become disabled, or experience an injury or illness is a major consideration in personal financial planning. As an employee, you automatically receive Basic Life and AD&D coverage in the amount of $100,000. This coverage is provided at no cost to you.

You may choose anyone to be the beneficiary of your Life and AD&D policy in the event of your death or serious injury. Review your beneficiary designation periodically to ensure it reflects your current wishes. You may change your beneficiary as often as you need in ADP.

Disability

Life can have its ups and downs. With Unum disability coverage, you can be protected financially if you experience an injury or illness that prevents you from working.

Short-Term Disability (STD)

Effective 1/1/2022: STD coverage provides income replacement if you are sick or injured and need time off work to recover. The STD plan provides 100% of your weekly salary, to a maximum of $2,500 per week for up to 12 weeks of a disability. Benefits begin after a 7-day waiting period for illness or injury. If you are hospitalized, the waiting period is waived. You are automatically covered under the STD plan at no cost to you.

Disability benefits may be offset by benefits you receive from state-mandated disability plans.

Long-Term Disability (LTD)

LTD coverage is important because anyone at any age may become injured or ill for an extended period of time. LTD protects you from loss of income in the event you are unable to work due to an illness, injury, or accident for a period of time that exceeds the short-term disability benefit. You are automatically covered under the LTD plan at no cost to you.

LTD coverage will replace 60% of your base salary to a monthly maximum of $6,000 if you are disabled for more than 90 days and are unable to work. LTD benefits are offset by other sources of income, such as Social Security and workers’ compensation.
