Benefits: AFLAC

This is a supplemental insurance benefit. There are payroll deductions associated with each of the plans. AFLAC (American Family Life Assurance Company) offers these benefits on a pre-tax basis (except disability and life):

Short-Term Disability Income Insurance

If you work full-time (over 30 hours per week) and are disabled within 90 days of a covered sickness or injury, AFLAC will pay a benefit for each day you remain disabled (unable to perform the material and substantial duties of your full-time job). The flexibility of this plans allows you to determine your own elimination period, benefit amount and the corresponding rates. This coverage is designed to cover the period of time that you are disabled until your long term disability takes effect in 180 days (6 months). This coverage is not pre-taxed.

AFLAC Cancer Care

With the current costs of health care, most families would not be without basic personal medical insurance. However, even the best medical plan will not cover 100% of your costs. AFLAC pays cash directly to you, unless assigned, regardless of any other insurance you may have.

If cancer strikes, you will need help with deductibles, cost-sharing expenses, non-medical expenses including travel, food, lodging, phone and household help as well as out of pocket expenses for normal everyday living costs like car payments, mortgage or rent, etc.

Accident Indemnity Advantage

Accidents happen to all kinds of people every day. What would the financial impact of an injury mean to your security? Out of pocket expenses associated with an accident are unexpected and often burdensome. This plan benefit includes

  • Emergency Treatment
  • Follow-up Treatment
  • Initial Hospitalization
  • Hospital Confinement
  • Accidental-Death
  • And so much more

Life Insurance

AFLAC now offers Life Insurance coverage to all employees.
