Travel Accident

Personal Accident Travel Insurance 

The University carries an all-conveyance travel policy that pays benefits to employees for accidental death, dismemberment, and loss of sight. Coverage is equal to two times your annual salary, subject to a $100,000 minimum and a $500,000 maximum if you are under the age of 70. If you are age 70 to 74, coverage is limited to $10,000.
The plan protects you only when you are traveling on University business by automobile, bus, rail, boat, and aircraft (as a passenger only, not as a pilot or crewmember). This policy does not include medical expense protection since medical insurance or Workers’ Compensation provides such coverage. Details about this plan can be obtained from the Office of Risk Management.
Charges for any additional travel accident insurance that you purchase over and above this will not be reimbursed.
