Workplace Assault & Hazard Insurance
Why choose Workplace Assault & Hazard Insurance?
Each day fire fighters respond to events nationwide focused on serving and protecting the public. In the course of these daily events various situations can occur unexpectedly where the fire fighter may be injured and their families suffer a loss of income over a brief or prolonged period of time. While Workers Compensation pay can cover some of these expenses, they do not adequately cover all household financial needs. What can an IAFF member do to help protect their financial security?
The Workplace Assault & Hazard Insurance Plan provides lump sum cash benefits payable directly to the affected fire fighter in addition to any other benefits received from their department and or municipality. Coverage is Guaranteed Issue, meaning you cannot be denied a policy when you elect to enroll regardless of prior health history. The only requirement is that you be actively employed on your effective date of coverage.
