Basic Life and AD&D
For employees working 36 or more hours each week, DSB Technologies provides company paid basic life and accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance through The Hartford to assist yourself and your family in the event of a loss. Your coverage amount will be paid to the beneficiary or beneficiaries of your choice in the event of your death while you are still actively employed at DSB Technologies.
If your death is due to accidental causes (as defined by the plan document) your beneficiary will receive an additional amount through the accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) coverage. The AD&D coverage is equal to your life insurance coverage amount. AD&D coverage also provides a portion of the benefit in the event of certain accidental injuries not resulting in death.
The company-provided basic term life/ AD&D coverage will pay 1 × your annual salary, up to a maximum of $150,000.
Basic Life/AD&D and supplemental life benefits with The Hartford are reduced by 35% upon reaching age 65, 60% at age 70 and then 75% at age 75.
Reminder: be sure to assign a beneficiary or living trust to ensure your assets are distributed according to your wishes.
