Common Carrier - this benefit pays twice the elected additional coverage if your loss occurs due to a covered accident while you are in, entering, or exiting a common carrier.
Education Benefit - if you suffer an accidental death, this benefit reimburses education expenses of 2% of the insured's accidental death benefit for each dependent child who is enrolled as a full-time student in an institution of higher learning.
Anti-Inflation Benefit - for every two years an insured's additional coverage remains continuously in force, it will be increased by 5% until it reaches 125% of the original amount.
Adaptive Home and Vehicle Benefit - provides a benefit if the insured's home and/or private motor vehicle requires modifications to accommodate the insured's dismemberment or total and permanent disability resulting from a covered loss.
Waiver of Premium Benefit - if an insured becomes totally and permanently disabled prior to age 60, remains continuously disabled for at least 6 months, and continues to pay premiums during this 6 month waiting period, the insured's accidental death and dismemberment insurance will remain in force after the waiting period without payment of premium.
