How do insurance benefits help my family and me?

Depending on your employer’s benefits package, you may have access to these insurance benefits:

Dental insurance

Helps pay for all, or a portion, of the costs associated with dental care, from routine cleanings to root canals.

Vision insurance

Covers, or partially covers, preventive eye care like eye exams. It will also reduce your out-of-pocket cost for prescription glasses and contacts.

Life insurance

Helps financially protect your loved ones by providing a payment to beneficiaries after your death.

Disability insurance

Helps protect one of your most valuable assets—the ability to earn an income. If you’re too sick or hurt to work, you can rely on disability insurance to replace a portion of your income.

Critical illness1 insurance

Helps cover some of the expenses associated with a serious illness. You’ll receive a lump-sum cash benefit if you’re diagnosed with a specific critical illness.

Accident insurance

Helps you and your family be better prepared to handle expenses that pop up after an accidental injury. You’ll receive a lump-sum cash benefit after having a covered injury.
