BB&T Voluntary Benefits
In addition to your Flexible Benefits, you have an opportunity to enroll in two voluntary benefits that may be of interest to you and your family: Critical Illness Coverage and Group Accident Insurance. Both of these voluntary benefits are offered through Aflac® to benefits-eligible, actively working associates. These benefits are affordable and are conveniently paid through payroll deduction, and can be a good investment in you and your family's future.
Critical Illness Coverage and Group Accident Insurance Benefits:
- Available for associates, spouses and dependents
- Any benefits received are paid directly to you
- Can be continued at the same cost regardless of future employment status
Critical Illness Coverage
Critical Illness Coverage can help protect you and your eligible family members in the event you or a family member is diagnosed with a covered critical illness. In such an event, the coverage can provide you with a lump sum payment to be used any way you choose. This payment is intended to help reduce the financial burden that often comes with the expenses and recovery associated with a critical illness.
If you are interested in the Critical Illness Coverage, review the brochure which contains information about plan provisions and exclusions.
Group Accident Insurance
Group Accident Insurance can help protect you and your eligible family members in the event you or a family member is involved in a covered accident. In such an event, the coverage pays regardless of any other insurance you may have and provides benefits for both inpatient and outpatient treatment. This coverage provides benefits to help cover the costs associated with unexpected bills from a covered accident.
If you are interested in the Group Accident Insurance, review the brochure which contains information about plan provisions and exclusions.
