Frequently Asked Questions

Coverage and Dependent Questions:

WHY DO I NEED SENIOR ACCIDENTAL DEATH INSURANCE?

Consider what would happen if you died as a result of an accident. Senior Accidental Death coverage helps provide your family financial relief if you are involved in an accident that results in death. Even with an employer-sponsored life insurance plan, oftentimes, you may need more coverage if you should lose your life in an accident. This plan provides coverage to what you may already have at a reasonable cost.

HOW IS SENIOR ACCIDENTAL DEATH COVERAGE DIFFERENT FROM LIFE INSURANCE?

While life insurance typically provides benefits to an individual's family no matter how a death occurs, Senior Accidental Death coverage provides benefits to victims and their family only in the case of an accident - for example, a car accident or a work accident. It does not provide benefits, for instance, for individuals who die naturally or due to an illness.

WHEN DOES MY COVERAGE GO INTO EFFECT?

Your coverage goes into effect on the first of the month following receipt of your enrollment form and first premium payment. Once activated, coverage is effective as long as the Master Policy remains in force and you pay your premium when due

WHAT DOES "INJURY" MEAN?

Injury means bodily injury resulting directly from an accident and independent of all other causes. Loss resulting from sickenss or disease, or medical or surgical treatment of a sickness or disease, is not covered. The accident must occur while you are covered under the policy.

WHAT DOES "COMMON CARRIER" MEAN?

Common Carrier refers to any mode of transportation operated by a business, other than the Policyholder, organized and licensed for the transportation of passengers for hire and operated by an employee of that business.

HOW MUCH INSURANCE DO I NEED?

The amount of insurance you need depends on your personal situation, including marital status, number of children, etc. You may wish to consult a personal financial advisor.

WHAT MAKES UNION PLUS DIFFERENT?

Union Plus exclusively serves the needs of union members and their families by providing group insurance at specially negotiated rates. Unlike many other plans, the Union Plus plan offers:

  • Waiver of premium payment - you may not have to pay your premium for up to one year during a union-sanctioned strike or lockout lasting 30 days or more. May not be available for all unions or in all states.
  • Coverage for members ages 50 and over - the Union Plus plan covers you as long as you remain a U.S. resident, pay your premiums and the master policy remains in force.
  • Coverage for your eligible dependents remains in effect until your coverage ends or they no longer qualify as eligible dependents.

WHAT IS THE POLICY REVIEW PERIOD?

Members have 60 days to review the Certificate of Insurance. If you change your mind within that time you are entitled to a full refund of premium, less any claim paid during the first 60 days.

CAN COVERAGE BE PAID BY CREDIT CARD?

Yes. You may choose this as your payment option during the enrollment process.

IS AUTOMATIC CHECKING-ACCOUNT DEDUCTION AVAILABLE?

Yes. You may choose this as your payment option during the enrollment process.

Accident Form Series includes GBD-1000, GBD-1300 or state equivalent.
