The University provides travel accident insurance to all employees at no cost to the individual. This insurance is designed to provide maximum protection for employees whose University duties expose them to the hazards of travel. Benefits of $200,000.00 are provided for accidental death or dismemberment suffered only while the insured are on authorized trips which require them to travel away from the premises of the University.
The death benefit is payable to the estate of the insured unless an individual Designation of Beneficiary Form is filed with the University. Dismemberment benefits are payable to the insured employee.
The Human Resources Office will counsel, distribute the necessary information and enroll all eligible employees for this insurance coverage.
