The BLET National Division provides all active and retired members with an Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) benefit at no cost to the member. The National Division is pleased to announce that as of June 1, 2017, this benefit is now being provided through Berkley Accident and Health Insurance Company, a top-rated insurer with an AM Best Financial Strength Rating of A+ (Superior).

The Accidental Death and Dismemberment benefit remains $4,000 for every active and retired member. This benefit is now being administered by Cornerstone Benefits Management (Cornerstone). If you wish to designate beneficiaries you can do so by clicking on the blue “Designate Beneficiaries” button below or by calling us at 847-387-3555. Completing your beneficiary designation will not result in any contact from Cornerstone, unless you request additional information.

In addition to the $4,000 AD&D benefit, the BLET and Cornerstone are currently working to create a new suite of voluntary insurance products. These additional products are being created by the BLET to give active, dues paying members and their families an affordable way to minimize the financial hardship often resulting from an accident, illness or loss of a loved one.

These additional benefits will be available strictly on a voluntary basis to all active members and there is no obligation to purchase them.

For more information on the policy or how to submit an AD&D claim, call Cornerstone at 847-387-3555 or email info@uniondisability.com.
