Specified disease insurance can pay a lump sum benefit at the diagnosis of a covered illness. You choose the level of coverage – from $5,000 to $50,000 – and you can use the money any way you see fit. The policy is purchased in $1,000 increments. Coverage is portable. You may take the coverage with you if you leave the organization or retire without having to answer new health questions. Unum will bill you directly for the same premium amount. During your initial enrollment, guaranteed issue coverage is available for you and your spouse.

* Please contact your enrollment specialist at Trion for rate information. Please see policy definitions for complete details about these covered conditions.
