Basic Life and AD&D Insurance (paid by Zovio)
Life insurance protects your family or other beneficiary(s) in the event of your death while you are still actively employed at Zovio. You will automatically be covered under the basic life insurance plan. If your death is due to an accident, your beneficiary will receive an additional amount through accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) coverage.
What is the Basic Life Benefit?
What is the AD&D Benefit?
The payable amount of your AD&D benefit depends on the type of loss. In the event of death due to an accident, your beneficiary(s) may receive both your life and AD&D benefits.
Voluntary Life Insurance (paid by you)
It is important to have enough life insurance protection for your family. If you determine you need more than the basic life coverage, you may want to add coverage for yourself and your eligible dependents.

Cost of Voluntary Life Insurance
Deductions for voluntary life/AD&D are taken from your paycheck after taxes. Rates are available online during enrollment.
Guaranteed Issue amounts only apply for newly eligible employees. If you are electing additional life insurance outside of when it was first offered to you, or in amounts over the guaranteed issue, you will be required to submit a Medical History Statement for approval by the insurance company before coverage can become effective.
Don’t forget to designate a beneficiary(s) for your life and AD&D benefits. Designate a beneficiary in the benefits portal.
Short-term disability (STD) insurance pays you a portion of your income if you become unable to perform your regular job duties for seven days due to illness or injury.
Long-term disability (LTD) insurance pays you a portion of your income if you become unable to perform your regular job duties for 90 days due to illness or injury. LTD works with Social Security and any other group disability coverage to provide you with a combined monthly benefit.
Taxation of Disability Coverage
Because the STD and Core LTD premiums are paid by Zovio for all full-time employees, any disability payments made to you will be taxable. If you choose the Buy-Up option, the benefit is not taxable.
STD and LTD benefits are reduced by any other disability benefits you are eligible to receive. Refer to the plan policy for full limitations.
