    Benefit Increase for Recreational Dives

    If an insured member dies within 180 days as a result of injury caused by an accident that occurs while performing a recreational dive, DAN will pay an additional benefit equal to 10 percent of the member's life insurance amount in effect on the date of the accident, up to a maximum of $25,000. A recreational dive is a dive to a depth of less than 130 feet, which is not a commercial dive or performed for wage or profit. A recreational dive begins upon entry into the water and ends upon exit from the water.

    Accelerated Benefits

    After 180 consecutive days of being covered under the group policy, if an insured member is diagnosed with a terminal illness from which the person is not expected to recover that will result in death in six months or less, a sum of up to 60 percent of the total benefit less the discount is available prior to death. This money can be used for any purpose, such as paying medical bills or making the most of the precious months that remain. The remainder of your total benefit will then be paid to your beneficiary when death occurs, provided premiums continue to be paid.

    Accelerated death benefits are not payable if the member has made an absolute assignment of his life insurance under the group policy, all or part of the member's life insurance under the group is to be paid to his child(ren) or former spouse as part of a court-approved divorce agreement, the insurance company does not receive written consent by any irrevocable beneficiary or the terminal illness is a result of intentional self-inflicted injury or attempted suicide. Receipt of accelerated death benefits may be taxable. Consult your personal tax advisor for specific details.


    In the event of suicide during the first two years the Plan is in force, benefits are limited to a full return of premiums paid, plus interest.
