Two coverages in one. Major Accident Protection combines Major Impairment accident coverage with Accidental Death coverage � anywhere you are in the world, 24/7.
Guaranteed acceptance. NO medical tests or questions are required when you apply. Your spouse can also apply.
Low premiums never increase. This is one of the most affordable plans you can ever purchase for personal accident protection � as low as $1.50 a month! Plus, your premiums stay the same even as you get older.
