Life Insurance and AD&D Insurance
Essential coverage for your employees and their family
Life Insurance and Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance (basic or optional) are the core benefits of every group insurance plan.
They ensure financial security to your employees and their family in the event of death, as well as additional coverage in the event of accidental death or dismemberment.
If one of your employees can no longer work due to illness or injury, the consequences immediately result in additional costs and losses for your business.
With UV Insurance’s Disability Insurance, you obtain a service to effectively manage the risk of recurrence, and you provide the disabled employee with financial security to cover their needs and those of their dependants.
Customized coverage options are available for the specific needs of your company.
