Base Plan: The component of the AD&D Program provides a benefit in the amount of one times the covered employee's base annual salary up to a maximum of $600,000. Saint Louis University pays the entire premium for the base plan.
Optional Coverage: You may select optional levels of AD&D insurance in units of $10,000 up to $500,000 on your life, at a cost to you. The cost is $.21 per month for each $10,000 selected. (AD&D amounts over $150,000 cannot be more than 10 times your annual salary).
Family AD&D coverage is also available at $.32 per month for each $10,000 selected (including employee coverage). The plan includes coverage for your spouse at 40 percent of your selected benefit and ten percent for each eligible child. If you have a spouse and no children, the spouse's benefit is increased to 50 percent or one half of your selected benefit.
