AD&D and Life Insurance: Do Both Pay Out?
- Life Insurance Payout: Life insurance pays a death benefit to the beneficiary upon the policyholder’s death, regardless of the cause. This coverage is comprehensive, including death due to illness, natural causes, or accidents.
- AD&D (Accidental Death and Dismemberment) Insurance Payout: AD&D insurance specifically covers accidental death or dismemberment. It pays out if the policyholder dies or suffers a severe injury, such as loss of limbs or eyesight, due to an accident.
Scenarios Where Both Policies Pay Out
- Accidental Death: If the policyholder dies due to an accident, both life insurance and AD&D policies will pay out. The beneficiaries receive the death benefit from the life insurance and the accidental death benefit from the AD&D insurance.
- Non-Accidental Death: In cases of natural death or illness, only the life insurance policy pays out. The AD&D does not cover these scenarios.
