Business Travel Accident Insurance (BTA)
If you are a regular employee normally scheduled to work at least 20 hours per week, you are automatically covered under Business Travel Accident (BTA) insurance at no cost to you. Under our BTA insurance, if you are injured or become deceased as the result of an accident while travelling on VMware business, whether within your home country or abroad, Gerber Life will pay a lump sum benefit of 2 times your base annual earnings up to US$500,000 to either you or your named beneficiary.
