New Voya Supplemental Insurance Plans – Accident, Critical Illness and Hospitalization

Along with essentials like medical and dental insurance, you have the opportunity to enroll in additional benefits available through Voya. Each one you choose is a step toward a more protected, financially confident tomorrow.

Eligible employees must be actively at work as defined in your contract in order for coverage to become effective.

Accident Insurance

A covered accidental injury—like a broken bone, concussion or deep cut—may affect your daily plans, but it doesn’t have to hurt your financial ones. Get a benefit payment to spend on gas, utilities, or anything you’d like.

Your coverage includes Sports Accident, Catastrophic, and Accidental Death & Dismemberment benefits.

Critical Illness Insurance

Getting life back on track after a stroke, heart attack, or other covered illness is challenging enough. Get coverage that can help with everyday expenses and more.   This plan includes a Wellness Benefit – get an annual benefit payment of $75, paid directly to you, after completing a covered health screening.

Hospital Indemnity Insurance

Get a benefit payment after an eligible stay in a covered medical facility and use it for any expense you’d like. Childcare, groceries, help around the house—it’s up to you.
