In Canada, accidents are the fifth leading cause of death for people of all ages.* A serious injury or the accidental death of a wage earner can have tremendous consequences, even for a two-income family. Without sufficient financial resources, employees may not be able to afford the care they or their loved ones may require. Home mortgage payments, college education funds and retirement savings may all be jeopardized if money is not available to help provide for employees and their families’ needs.
With Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) Insurance from AIG, companies have an excellent solution that can help reduce employee benefit costs, expand benefit packages and demonstrate their commitment to employees. Our employer-funded program helps control costs for companies seeking affordable benefit alternatives and enables businesses to offer their employees valuable 24-hour accident coverage, on or off the job.
