Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance (AD&D), as its name implies, serves an important purpose: It provides a benefit to you or your family if you are severely injured or are killed in an accident. For example, if you die from a fall, car accident or drowning, your beneficiaries receive a set benefit to help them after you’re gone. And if an injury results in a loss of sight, speech, hearing or limb, you’ll receive a portion of your benefit that can help you improve your quality of life.

AD&D insurance is not a replacement for disability or life insurance. It’s an additional, inexpensive and easily attainable coverage for specific circumstances. This insurance can help cover unexpected mishaps associated with an active lifestyle, a long commute, travel and more.

Here are five typical scenarios that AD&D insurance can cover.
