Why TruStage AD&D
- The Increasing Benefit: The longer you keep the coverage, the value of your Additional Coverage automatically increases by up to 5%—up to a total of 50% over 10 years—at no added cost to you.
- Hospital Benefits: If you or your covered spouse or child is hospitalized within one year due to injuries caused by a covered accident, and are confined for more than seven consecutive days, we will pay a hospital benefit from the first day of confinement. The benefit will equal 1% of the Additional Coverage for that person for each full month of confinement, up to $1,000 a month or $12,000 a year.
Accidents are the fourth-leading cause of death in America.1
