SUMMARY OF INSURANCE PROVISIONS

ELIGIBILITY  All active members who are 18 and older, their lawful spouses age 18 and older and the members' unmarried dependent children are eligible for coverage.  Dependent children are defined (subject to state variations) as those up to age 21 or 25 if full-time students and primarily dependent upon the member for support. On joint accounts, the Primary Member must be the one to enroll.

GUARANTEED ACCEPTANCE  Every eligible member will be accepted for this coverage regardless of health or occupation. No physical examination is necessary and there are no health questions to answer.

HOW TO ENROLL  You must complete and submit the Activation Form to be eligible for the $3,000 of Basic Coverage which is provided for you at no cost.  Indicate the amount of Additional Coverage you are enrolling for on the Activation Form.  If you select Additional Coverage, you have the option of covering your family as well as yourself (basic coverage is not applicable to dependents).  This program can help provide the accident protection that you and your family need. 

If you already have this coverage, you may increase your existing voluntary coverage or add dependent coverage by completing a New York Life Change Form found on www.nbfsa.com or calling the Plan Administrator toll-free at 888.200.5106, weekdays between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. Eastern Time.

ADDITIONAL COVERAGEAdditional Coverage up to $300,000 is available at affordable rates. Choose the plan that is closest to your family's needs, keeping in mind that a reasonable minimum should be 1-1/2 times your annual salary; more if your obligations are greater. Premiums will be deducted from your checking or savings account each month.

Additional Coverage Available Member Only Plan Cost per Month Family Plan Cost per Month
$10,000 to $300,000 $1.00 per $10,000 $1.50 per $10,000

* All coverage amounts reduce to 50% when the insured reaches age 70 and to 25% at age 75. If you are currently age 70 or older, the coverage amount is 50% of the amount shown; if age 75 or older, the coverage amount is 25% of the amount shown.  Premiums remain the same. Premiums are current and may be changed on any due date and any date which benefits are changed. However, your rates may only be changed if they are changed for all others in the same class of insureds. For example, a class of insureds would be a group of people with the same benefit type.

                      Child Coverage = $10,000 per child ($12,500 per child if no spouse)

RENEWAL OF COVERAGE  Your AD&D coverage cannot be cancelled as long as you are a member, the group policy remains in effect, and you pay premiums when due for any Additional Coverage selected.  If you decide to discontinue your participation in the plan, your coverage will continue until the end of the period for which premiums have been paid. 

CERTIFICATE OF INSURANCE  Each member enrolling in the plan will receive a Certificate of Insurance which will be mailed to you within a short time of the effective date of your coverage.

EFFECTIVE DATE  Your insurance will become effective on the first regular billing date following receipt and acceptance of your Activation Form by the Plan Administrator, provided your first month's premium for any Additional Coverage has been paid.

BENEFICIARY Any person or persons you choose may be the beneficiary of your benefits. You may change your beneficiary at any time by written request to the Plan Administrator. If no beneficiary is on record, benefits will be paid per the Beneficiary of the Insured provision as outlined in your Certificate of Insurance.

WHEN COVERAGE ENDS Your coverage will end on the earliest of 1) the next premium due date if you are no longer an eligible member of the credit union participating in the plan; 2) the premium due date, if required premium is not paid by the end of the 31 day grace period; 3) the date the Insured Person enters full-time active duty in the Armed Forces; 4) the date group policy is terminated or modified to end coverage for the class of eligible persons to which the Insured Person belongs; or 5) the date that the plan of benefits under which the Insured Person is covered is terminated. Termination will not affect a claim for a covered loss due to an accident that occurred while coverage was in effect. Coverage for your insured spouse or child will end when your coverage ends or when the dependent eligibility requirements are no longer being met.

If you are not completely satisfied with the terms of your new insurance, simply return your Certificate, without claim, within 30 days and your premium will be promptly refunded.
