Monthly Expense Benefit: An additional benefit of 1 % of the amount of coverage payable per month for up to 12 months to a maximum of $1,000 per month. The benefit is payable if you die as a result of a covered accident within 365 days of the accident and you have a surviving spouse at the time of your death. The benefit will be paid until the earlier of your spouse dies or the benefit has been paid for 12 consecutive months.

Child Care Benefit : (available to members enrolled under Family Coverage): The plan provides a benefit for child care expenses of a covered dependent child under the age of thirteen if the member dies in a covered accident.
