Accident and Sickness Insurance for Emergency Responders
Every day, our nation’s dedicated firefighters are injured in the line of duty. Sadly, injured firefighters and their families soon discover that workers’ compensation benefits can be hard on a family budget. Between waiting periods, maximum disability limits, and exclusions for pre-existing conditions, there are some serious coverage gaps that impact the family’s income and expenses.
In addition, some members of your team, such as junior members and auxiliary members, may be excluded from workers' compensation coverage altogether!
For these reasons, our partner, VFIS, offers accident and sickness coverage to supplement work comp benefits. This coverage provides your team protection during all normal duties including travel to and from activities.
Coverage can include:
- Weekly disability benefits
- Loss of life
- Medical benefits
- Lump sum permanent physical impairment
- Lifetime weekly income for permanent physical impairments
- Occupational retraining benefit
