Life insurance benefits can give you the peace of mind of knowing you’re prepared for the future—providing a cash benefit to you or your loved ones in the event of death or serious injury.
Basic Company-Paid Coverage
Ensign pays the full cost of basic life and accidental death & dismemberment (AD&D) insurance. This coverage is available to all benefit eligible Ensign Affiliate employees, regardless of whether you are enrolled in other benefit plans.
Supplemental Life Insurance
If you need more than basic coverage, you may purchase supplemental life insurance coverage through Unum for yourself and for your eligible dependents. You pay the full cost of supplemental coverage through after-tax payroll deductions.
If you are enrolling for coverage when first eligible, evidence of insurability is required for coverage amounts greater than the guaranteed issue amounts shown in the table below.

The evidence of insurability process is now integrated with Workday. If your election requires the completion of evidence of insurability, you will complete the process online as part of your enrollment.
Supplemental Accidental Death & Dismemberment Insurance

Benefits are paid in the event of death or a serious injury (such as loss of a limb or eyesight) due to an accident. Evidence of insurability is not required for this coverage. You pay the full cost of supplemental AD&D coverage through after-tax payroll deductions.
