We are making great strides to improve coverage’s to the applicants / fire fighters. The policy period will be January 1 – December 31. The 12 month premium will be $45.00 per $50,000k per member.  Amounts up to $250,000 can now be purchased in increments of $50,000 for the Supplemental AD&D, $45.00 per $50k of desired amount, up to $250,000 death benefit.

Example: Firefighter wants $150,000 AD&D death benefit
$45.00 per 50k: $150,000/50,000 = 3
$45.00 x 3 = $135 total premium for a death benefit of $150,000 for the firefighter.
