About Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance
In the event an AD&D policy needs to be used, it provides a predetermined lump sum of money to the policyholder, which can be used as beneficiaries deem fit. Rather than being used on medical bills, the cash can be used on costs of living, equipment for the home, or virtually anything beneficiaries want to use it on.
What is defined as dismemberment?
Dismemberment is generally thought of as when a person permanently loses a body part, such as an arm or leg. However, AD&D insurance also extends to other areas beyond just the loss of a limb.

What kinds of accidents are included?

What situations are excluded?
It's important to remember that AD&D insurance only covers accidental incidents. Therefore, no benefit will be provided to anyone who harms themselves intentionally.
Likewise, death from natural causes, injuries sustained while participating in war or professional sports, or death or injury occuring while under the effect of a controlled substance are excluded from coverage.
