Life & Disability Insurance
Group Basic Life and Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D)
The Medford School District covers the cost of Basic Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance for benefit-eligible employees. Basic Life insurance through Standard Insurance Company helps provide financial protection by promising to pay a benefit in the event of an eligible member's, or his or her dependent's, covered death. Basic Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) insurance may provide an additional amount in the event of a covered death or dismemberment as a result of an accident.
Additional Life and AD&D
In addition to the Basic Life/Accidental Death & Dismemberment Insurance provided by the District, eligible employees can purchase additional group insurance by enrolling in the Optional Life/Accidental Death and Dismemberment insurance. The insurance provides an additional death benefit to the beneficiary that the employee has designated, in the event of the employee's death.
