There’s a need for Accidental Death & Dismemberment Protection!




           L       OOK AT THESE FACTS…
                     National Safety Council’s “2002 Injury
           Facts” makes it clear…

             I   Accidents are the fifth leading cause of death
                 for people of all ages.

             I   Accidents are the leading cause of death for
                 individuals age 1 to 34.

             I   An accidental injury occurs every two seconds;
                 an accidental death every six minutes.

             I   Over $500 billion is spent on accidental
                 injuries each year. These are costs every
                 individual and household pays whether
                 directly, out of pocket, or through higher prices
                 for goods and services.
