Accelerated Life Benefit
This important plan benefit gives you the ability to collect part of your IMA
Term Life benefits before your death if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness.
If your doctor diagnoses you with a life expectancy of 12 months or less, you
can collect up to 25 percent or up to 75 percent of your benefits (or $50,000, whichever
is less) before you die–to use however you wish.
(Note: A doctor–certified terminal illness means an illness from which
no recovery is expected, that results in a life expectancy of 12 months or less. You must have at least $20,000 of coverage in force to exercise this option.)
This money can be used to help cover high prescription drug costs…medical
bills…outstanding debts…to help pay for experimental treatments…the
cost of modifications to your home…or for a family vacation – the
choice is yours.
Receipt of the accelerated benefit may be taxable, or may adversely affect your eligibility for Medicaid or other government benefits. You should consult your personal tax advisor to assess the impact of this benefit.
Waiver of Premium
If you become totally disabled, as defined in the certificate, for 180 days
or longer before age 60, your coverage and benefits will continue at no cost
to you until the earliest of the end of your disability or until you reach age 80.
Accidental Death & Dismemberment Benefit (Optional Coverage)
You can elect Group Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) up to the same level
of death benefit for which you are applying. In addition, if you are seriously injured in a covered
accident and sustain loss of limb, eyesight or other injuries, a partial benefit
may be payable. (Please note: Semi-annual rates are $.60 per $5,000 of coverage
if under age 65; $.90 per $5,000 if ages 65-80.)
