Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D)2
Employers have the flexibility to add AD&D to their voluntary term life coverage. Principal Life offers a basic benefit, plus three optional packages to offer employees even greater protection. Get the details. (PDF) (GP52194)
1 Available to terminally ill employees diagnosed with a life expectancy of 12 months or less and at least a $10,000 benefit. Death benefits are reduced by the amount of any accelerated benefits received. Because of possible tax consequences, employees should contact a tax advisor before receiving accelerated benefits. Receipt of the accelerated death benefit may affect eligibility for public assistance programs.
2 In some states, certain provisions listed as AD&D may be paid as a Personal Loss Benefit.
