Rate Increases for Voluntary Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance (AD&D)

May 20th, 2011

Due to high claims experience, we are required to increase the Voluntary Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance (AD&D) contribution rates, effective August 1, 2011.

Revised rates were sent to all employers in an e-mail on May 18, 2011. Please see your payroll department or click here for the new rates.

The revised rates are to be applied to the first pay period ending in August 2011.

For example: if the first pay period end date is August 4th, then that is when the new rate should be applied.

It is important that the correct contributions be remitted, in order to avoid claim delays or denials.

If you are on an approved leave of absence or on layoff and have prepaid your Voluntary Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance, please contact your payroll department so they can collect the additional contributions that will be required if you do not return to work by August 1, 2011.

Please contact our office if you have any questions.
