Q. What is Critical Illness Coverage?
A. Postal Worker Protector is Term Life Insurance that pays Living Benefits to an individual upon the diagnosis of a critical illness regardless of treatment, actual expenses or other coverage. Living Benefit payments are from all or part of the Life Insurance face amount and are for covered conditions diagnosed at least 30 days after the policy effective date (60 days for cancer).
Q. Why Critical Illness Coverage?
A. Almost everyone knows someone who has experienced a critical illness of some kind... and survived physically. Postal Worker Protector is designed to help people through the financial challenges associated with survival.
Critical Illnesses are real. Each year in America:
Approximately 1.1 million people suffer heart attacks. (Source: American Heart Assoc., Heart and Stroke Statistical Update, 2002.)
Over half a million people suffer strokes. (Source: American Heart Assoc., Stroke Outcomes Classification, 2002.)
About 1.2 million people are diagnosed with cancer. (Source: American Cancer Society, 2002 Facts and Figures.)
Survival Rates Are Up! Advanced medical technology is allowing many more people to survive critical illnesses that would have been fatal in the past:
Between 1989 and 1999, the death rate declined approximately 24% from heart attacks and almost 13% for strokes. (Source: American Heart Assoc., 2002 Heart and Stroke.)
About 4,600,000 stroke survivors are alive today. (Source: American Cancer Society, 2002 Facts and Figures.)
The possibility of surviving a critical illness before age 65 is almost twice as great as dying. (Source: National Center for Health Statistics.)
Living Benefits are paid directly to you. You choose how to spend the benefit at a time when you and your family may need extra cash the most. For example:
Home Health Care
Cost of Care Givers
Lost income of self or spouse
Daily living expenses
Co-pays and Deductibles
Non-covered "experimental" Treatments
Housekeeping or Child Care Expenses
Maintenance of Your Family's Quality of Life
Tax Treatment Accelerated Living Benefit Unlike a Death Benefit, Living Benefits may be taxable. You should consult with a tax adviser as to the taxability of any Living Benefit you receive.
