Benefits

HIGH COVERAGE – AFFORDABLE RATES

The Group Travel Accident Insurance Plan efficiently delivers generous benefits for only pennies a day. How is this possible?

Because CSEA avoided expensive "extras" that most people never need. The result is a streamlined program that stands by your family with cash benefits when they need them most:

MEMBER COVERAGE:

$200,000.00 CASH BENEFITS PAID to your family if you die within 365 days after a common carrier accident (as a fare-paying passenger on a commercial plane, taxi, bus, cruise ship, train, or other common carrier).

$100,000.00 CASH BENEFITS PAID to your family if you die within 365 days as a result of a private motor vehicle accident – as a driver or passenger. Includes RVs, cars, vans, pick-ups, trucks, and more. Experience shows that motor vehicle accidents cause the deaths of tens of thousands of Americans, and hospitalization of hundreds of thousands more.1

1National Safety Council, Injury Facts 2017

 

UP TO $200.00 A DAY CASH BENEFITS PAID for every day you're treated as an inpatient in a hospital because of a covered common carrier accident. Benefits for private passenger vehicle accidents are $100 a day. You are covered for a maximum of up to two full years from the date of a covered accident – that's up to $146,000.00 in cash benefits!

Of course, your CSEA Travel Accident benefits are always paid IN ADDITION to any other insurance you may have. It's a valuable cash benefit to help pay for expenses your regular health insurance doesn't cover – like co-payments or deductibles… plane tickets for loved ones to fly home… even bills like the electricity and mortgage piling up at home.

YOU'RE UNDER NO OBLIGATION

If you decide your CSEA endorsed Travel Accident Protection isn't for you, just let us know within the first 30 days. We'll promptly refund your premiums, provided no claim has been submitted, and invalidate your coverage. No questions. No obligation.

CSEA Recommends "All Of Us" Benefit Option

Please consider signing up both you and your family when you enroll in your Travel Accident Benefits (See Terms Tab for Dependent Coverage amounts).

You're all guaranteed acceptance in the program. You all travel – whether it's across town for groceries, to school, to another state for family vacations, or across the country for work.

Because there's no telling when (or who) an accident will strike next, CSEA recommends you consider full family protection with the "ALL OF US" benefit option.

COVERAGE FOR YOUR DEPENDENTS

CSEA benefits can be extended to your family. The "ALL OF US" option gives coverage to your spouse, and also covers all of your unmarried dependent children, too - no matter how many kids you have - up to age 19, or up to age 25 if a full-time student. Spouse benefits equal 50% of Member's benefits if you have no children. If you have children, spouse benefit equals 40% of member benefit and children's benefit equals 10% of member's benefit. If you have no spouse, children's benefit equals 10% of member's benefit. For all covered persons, benefits reduce 50% at age 70, and another 50% at age 75. Total maximum benefit payable will be reduced to $10,000.00 (includes combination of principal sum and In-Hospital confinement expenses) upon reaching age 80 for a member and a spouse. Premiums remain the same.

TERMINATION OF COVERAGE

Your coverage will remain in force as long as the Master Policy remains in place and is not amended to end insurance for the group of individuals to whom you belong, you pay the premium when due, and you remain a Member of the CSEA. Coverage for your dependents ends when your coverage ends or when the eligibility requirements cease being met.

COVERAGE AT LATER AGES

Total maximum benefit will be reduced to $10,000.00 (includes combination of principal sum and In-Hospital confinement expenses) upon reaching age 80 for a member and spouse. Premiums remain the same.
