  • Accident Insurance pays a lump sum benefit directly to the insured, based on a covered accidental injury. Prudential pays Accident Insurance benefits in a lump sum, upon diagnosis.

    Even though the benefit can be used for any reason, including medical expenses, it’s important to point out that Accident Insurance is NOT comprehensive medical insurance.


  • Accident Insurance can help you financially prepare for the risks that come if you have out-of-pocket expenses due to an accidental injury.

    And that’s important when you consider that one out of every eight Americans visit the ER each year.2

    Even with comprehensive medical or disability income insurance, an accidental injury could negatively impact your finances. In fact, the cost of a broken leg is $10,000 or more, when you factor in lost wages, transportation, copays, deductibles, and medicine.3



  • Critical Illness Insurance pays a lump-sum benefit amount, directly to the insured, upon diagnosis of a covered condition.

    While every plan is different, some commonly covered conditions include:

    • Cancer
    • Heart attack
    • Stroke
    • Major organ transplant
    • Kidney failure
    • Coronary artery bypass surgery


    The benefit can be used for any purpose, including to help pay for any out-of-pocket expenses, and you do not have to account for how you spend the benefit.

    Critical Illness Insurance is NOT a comprehensive medical insurance or disability insurance plan. This coverage does not replace those plans or pay benefits in the same way.

  • Critical Illness Insurance can help you financially prepare for the risks that come if you have out-of-pocket expenses due to a serious illness.

    This is important because 62% of bankruptcies are based on a medical event.4
