$10K ACCIDENTAL DEATH BENEFIT POLICY
As you know, CSEA offers all Members a free $10K Accidental Death Benefit Policy, an increase from the prior $5K coverage. Even if you provided beneficiary information for the prior $5K policy, you must designate your beneficiary for the new $10K policy – as it IS a new policy. The simplest way to do that is to go to www.cseainc.org and click on ForMembers/Insurance/Accidental Death Benefit. You can then either fill out the online form or print and mail in the information.
