Serious Accidents Call for Extra Help
Most people avoid thinking about dismemberment — the other “D” in AD&D. But for employees who survive a serious accident, the loss of a hand, foot, sight or more can also mean the loss of their ability to return to work.
The Standard offers a unique way to help employees return to productive lives: AD&D Occupational Assistance. This service is now included with our Group Accidental Death and Dismemberment insurance, either sold with our Life insurance or on its own.
Eligible employees* will have access to services provided by our Workplace PossibilitiesSM consultants. The goal is to help the employee return to work with your organization. If that's not possible, we'll help with the transition to a new job.
How AD&D Occupational Assistance Works
AD&D Occupational Assistance can cover up to $10,000 of approved expenses. Services may include the consultant's time, vocational assistance, ergonomic equipment and workplace accommodations.
