AD&D and Life Insurance: Do Both Pay Out?

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
