Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance (AD&D)

Accidents happen every day, sometimes serious enough to cause a critical injury, or even death. Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance is being offered through the State of Michigan to help alleviate the financial burden that can result from a serious accident.

Eligible employees can enroll in Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) Insurance coverage up to $700,000 without answering medical questions. This is an increase from $300,000 of coverage that was offered during past open enrollments.

Enrolling for Coverage
