It helps protect you and your insured family members by providing accident protection that covers you year round … anywhere in the world.

Acceptance is guaranteed for eligible members and dependents.

Group Accidental Death & Dismemberment Plan

Underwritten by New York Life Insurance Company

ELIGIBILITY

As a member of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) under age 70, you are eligible to apply for this Group Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) coverage for yourself, your lawful spouse under age 70, and unmarried dependent children under age 19 (26 if a full-time student). To become insured, an application must be submitted and the required premium contribution must be paid.

This coverage is available to residents of the United States (except VT, WA and territories).

WHAT YOU CAN CHOOSE

Your Group AD&D benefit options can deliver the extra cash benefits your loved ones would need if you fell victim to a sudden accident.

You may select a Principal Sum ranging from $50,000 to $500,000 (in units of $50,000) for yourself–at economical group rates. You have a choice of two Plans–the Member Only Plan or the Family Plan. The Member Only Plan pays benefits for covered accidental death or injury for you alone. The Family Plan is designed to cover all of your eligible dependents for benefit amounts based on a percentage of your Principal Sum.

If you choose the Family Plan, benefits for your spouse will equal 50% of your base Principal Sum and each child will be covered for 10% of your base Principal Sum. If you have no eligible children, your spouse’s benefit increases to 60%. If you do not have an eligible spouse, each child would be covered for 15% of your base Principal Sum. The MOAA AD&D Plan stands as an important safety net to help MOAA families rebuild their lives after a covered accident. But it delivers more than basic protection. MOAA also negotiated a broad package of additional benefits— automatically included in your coverage.

An individual may not be insured under one or more AD&D Group Policies underwritten by New York Life for a total amount of AD&D coverage that exceeds current over-insurance standards.

Acceptance is guaranteed to all eligible MOAA members and their eligible family members. No medical exam is required. No health questions asked.

PLAN FEATURES

This MOAA-endorsed AD&D plan includes an innovative Civil Aircraft Benefit. If you hold a current valid certificate of competency authorizing performance of a pilot's duties and have logged at least 1,000 flight hours as a pilot in command, and you suffer a covered loss while acting as a pilot or crew member of a civil aircraft, 25% of your Principal Sum is payable. Please refer to the Exclusions and Limitations section for more details.

The Following Benefits are Payable IN ADDITION to Any Other Benefit Payable Under the Plan.

UP TO $10,000 EDUCATION BENEFIT for your eligible children is payable if the benefit for the member’s loss of life is payable and there are surviving insured dependents who are enrolled, or enroll within 365 days of the member’s death, in an institution of higher learning. The benefit payable will equal the actual cost of tuition up to the lesser of: 2% of the Member’s Principal Sum, or; $2,500 for children, $4,000 for spouse.

The benefit is payable each year per child who qualifies, and no more than four such benefits are payable per child. If you do not have any children in day care, an additional $500 will be paid.

* Amounts of Insurance After Age 69: On the premium due date on or immediately after the date the member reaches ages 70, 75 and 80, the Principal Sum in force reduces 50%, with similar reductions to Spouse and Child Principal Sums under the Family Plan. The Member Principal Sum available at age 80 may not exceed $25,000. Premiums do not reduce. Benefit option amounts are not guaranteed and are subject to change by agreement between New York Life and MOAA.

**Under the Family Plan, if on the date of the accident no dependent spouse is covered, dependent child coverage increases to 15% (instead of 10%) of the Member Principal Sum; if on the date of accident, spouse only is covered under the Family Plan, the spouse coverage increases to 60% of the Member Principal Sum (instead of 50%).

ADDITIONAL PLAN PROVISIONS

The premium contributions shown reflect the current rate and benefit structure. Premium contributions may be changed by New York Life Insurance Company on any premium due date an any date on which benefits are changed. However, your rates may change only if they are changed for all others in the same class of insureds. For example, a class of insureds in a group of people all with the same issue age.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Coverage for you and your eligible dependents will become effective on the first of the month following approval of your enrollment form as specified by New York Life Insurance Company provided the initial contribution is paid within 31 days of the date you are billed. (Payment of a premium contribution for insurance does not mean there is any coverage in force before the effective date as specified by New York Life Insurance Company.)

TERMINATION: You may maintain your coverage for life provided: the Group Policy is not terminated or modified by the policyholder or New York Life Insurance Company to end insurance for the group of insureds to which you belong and pay your premium on time. Coverage for your dependents terminates when your coverage ends, if you stop paying premiums, or when they no longer meet the eligibility requirements. (For a spouse, when he/she is no longer a lawful married spouse; for a dependent child, upon reaching age 19 [26 if a full-time student] or becomes married, or is no longer financially dependent on the member). Insurance for a covered person will end when the Principal Sum has been paid.

BENEFICIARY: You may select any person, persons, trust or other legal entity as your beneficiary. If, at the time of your death, there are no surviving beneficiaries, benefits will be paid to the executor or administrator of your estate, or at the option of New York Life, to the surviving relatives in the following order of survival: spouse; children equally; parents equally; or brothers and sisters equally. The beneficiary for dependent coverage is you, the member.

EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS: No benefit will be payable for any loss that occurs during or is due or related to or resulting from: participation in or incarceration resulting from, in a role other than as victim, commission of a felony, or illegal occupation/activity; voluntary intake of drugs, narcotics or intoxicants, unless as prescribed by a physician; illegal use of drugs or intoxicants, or legal intoxication; any declared or undeclared war or act thereof; Except for the reduced Civil Aircraft Benefit (see PLAN FEATURES), operating, riding in or descending from any aircraft except when riding as a passenger, Except, for any covered person recalled to service or serving in the reserves, this exclusion does not apply to losses that occur while traveling as a passenger on any transport type aircraft operated and/or contracted by the Air Mobility Command; physical or mental sickness or medical/surgical treatment thereof; suicide or intentionally self-inflicted injury while sane or insane.

Principal sums reduce after age 69, as described above within "Current 2016 Monthly Premiums".

CIVIL AIRCRAFT BENEFIT: This benefit is not payable for losses resulting from or in connection with: acrobatics, stunt flying, racing or endurance testing; or crop dusting, seeding, spraying, firefighting, exploration, pipe/power line inspection, hunting or herding, photography, banner towing, experimental testing or flight requiring an FAA permit or waiver, even if granted.

Group Accidental Death & Dismemberment Plan

Answers about the plan, including eligibility, options, enrollment, customer service and more.

As a member of MOAA under age 70, you are eligible to apply for coverage for yourself, your lawful spouse under age 70, and unmarried dependent children under age 19 (26 if a full-time student). To become insured, an application must be submitted and the required premium contribution must be paid.

This coverage is available to residents of the United States (except VT, WA and territories).

Insurance will terminate on the occurrence of the earliest of these conditions: if premium contributions due are not paid when due; if the Group Policy is terminated or modified by the Policyholder or New York Life Insurance Company to end insurance for the group of insureds to which the insured belongs; for any insured person, if the Principal Sum for that insured has been paid; for dependent spouse and/or child coverage, if member coverage ends, except that such dependent coverage may be continued if the member’s Principal Sum has been paid; for a dependent spouse, when he/she is no longer a lawful married spouse; for a dependent child, upon reaching age 19 (26 if a full-time student) or when such child becomes married, or is no longer financially dependent on the member. A member’s surviving spouse and children may continue coverage if it was in force at the time of the member’s death, as described in the Certificate of Insurance.

Coverage for you and your eligible dependents will become effective on the first of the month following approval of your enrollment form as specified by New York Life Insurance Company provided the initial contribution has been paid within 31 days of the date you are billed. (Payment of a premium contribution for insurance does not mean there is any coverage in force before the effective date as specified by New York Life Insurance Company.)

When you become insured, you will be sent a Certificate of Insurance summarizing your benefits under the Plan. If you are not completely satisfied with the terms of your Certificate of Insurance, you may return it, without claim, within 30 days. Your coverage will be invalidated and you will be sent a full refund—no questions asked!
