Accident Insurance


As a full-time faculty, staff and bargaining unit member, you can participate in a voluntary benefits program to purchase Accident Insurance. You may purchase it for yourself, as well as for your spouse/domestic partner and your dependent children.

About the Program

Accident Insurance from Colonial Life can help protect you and your family from the unexpected expenses of an accident that occurs off the job such as:

  • Sports-related accidental injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Concussions
  • Lacerations
  • Back or knee injuries

Accident Insurance helps to offset medical costs, such as emergency room fees, deductibles and co-payments that can result from a covered accident.

Features of Colonial Life's Accident Insurance include:

  • Benefits are paid directly to you (unless you specify otherwise).
  • Benefits are paid regardless of any other insurance you may have with other insurance companies. The coverage supplements your Personal Accident Insurance.
  • Coverage is portable; you can take it with you if you change jobs or retire.
