Accidental Death and Dismemberment

As a student enrolled in the Student Health Benefit Plan, you automatically receive Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) coverage—which provides benefits to you or your beneficiary if you are seriously injured or die in an accident.

Benefits are paid as a percentage of the full benefit amount of $15,000, based on the type of accidental injury. If the accident results in death, your beneficiary will receive the full benefit amount.

If you have no named beneficiary, your current beneficiary is your "default" beneficiary. That means Met Life will pay the death benefit in the following order of priority:

  1. Your lawful spouse, if living; otherwise,
  2. Your natural or legally adopted children in equal shares, if living; otherwise,
  3. Your parents in equal shares, if living; otherwise,
  4. Your sibling(s); otherwise,
  5. The personal representative of your estate.

If two or more beneficiaries are designated and their shares are not specified, they will share the insurance equally. If you would like to update your beneficiary designation, please complete the AD&D beneficiary formPDF icon and return to the Office of Student Health Benefits.
