Plan Accident Sickness Disability Plan provides an income for disabilities caused by injury or sickness, and additional income for hospitalization during the first 30 days. Several benefit options are available to meet your financial needs. A Good Health Rider will return all premiums if you go claim free for 10 years or attain age 55, whichever comes first.
Please contact your local representative with any questions you have regarding coverage.
You may keep the insurance in effect to your age 55 by timely premium payments. During this time, the Association may not make any changes in the policy.
After 55, you may keep the insurance in effect to your age 65 by timely premium payments, provided you are regularly and gainfully employed at least 30 hours each week. During this period, the Maximum Benefit Period may not go beyond your age 65, except that it cannot be less than one year.
If you are hospital-confined due to covered injury or sickness, the Association will pay 1/7th of the Weekly Disability Benefit for each day of confinement, up to 30 days. This benefit is in addition to all other benefits.
If you are disabled more than 90 days (the elimination period, if longer), the Association will refund dues paid during that period and waive payment of future dues, while you remain disabled.
Successive periods of disability resulting from the same cause which are separated by four months of full-time gainful employment are considered separate disabilities.
If you become totally disabled from a covered injury, benefits will begin on the first day of total disability.
If you have a 10-consecutive year claim-free period, this rider provides for refund of all dues paid during that period. The refund is also paid if you have a claim-free period of less than 10 years which ends with your death or age 55.
When the refund payment is made, the rider automatically terminates. Another rider may be attached at that time without evidence of insurability.
