Disability Income Insurance Plan

The AMTA Group Disability Income Insurance Plan can go a long way helping with monthly disability benefit amounts of up to $4,000.

Overview

Most things in your life depend dramatically on your ability to earn an income. Your home. Your everyday living expenses. Your children’s child care and educational needs. Your savings. Your hopes for retirement. Your dreams for the future.

So, if your income stops due to a disabling injury or illness, how will you pay your mortgage, your household bills, and the everyday living expenses for you and your family? Will you have to dip into your savings or other assets? And will your savings, the equity in your home, your retirement nest egg, and your other assets be able to carry you through until you’re recovered and able to return to work? And would you even want to use up your current financial resources like that, anyway?

With so many things in life being uncertain, why not help protect yourself and your loved ones from the financial risks and uncertainties surrounding a disability? Secure AMTA Group Disability Income Insurance today … so it’ll be there for you should you ever need it.

Terms

Effective Date

Coverage will begin on the 1st of the month, following the receipt of your approved application and payment.

Deferred Effective Date

If on the date You or Your Spouse are to become covered: 1) under The Policy; 2) for increased benefits; or 3) for a new benefit and You or Your Spouse are not Actively at Work on that date, coverage will not begin until the first day of the month on or next following the date You or he or she are Actively at Work for 1 month(s).

Total Disability means disability which: during the Elimination Period and first 24 months when Total Disability benefits are payable, wholly and continuously prevents You or Your Spouse from performing the Essential Duties of Your or Your Spouse’s occupations; and after that, wholly and continuously prevents You or Your Spouse from engaging in any Occupation.

Elimination Period means the number of consecutive days at the beginning of any one period of Total Disability which must elapse before benefits are payable.

Actively-at-Work means You or Your Spouse are performing all the Essential Duties of Your or Your Spouse’s Occupation for wage or profit on a full-time basis (at least 20 hours per week).

Pre-disability Earnings means: if You or Your Spouse are self-employed, You or Your Spouse’s average net monthly income (gross revenues less business expenses) from:

  • 1) the personal practice of You or Your Spouse’s profession; or
  • 2) personal conduct of You or Your Spouse’s main business.

 

This average is based on net income for: 1) 12 months; or 2) 24 months; whichever produces the higher average, before the determination is made. If You or Your Spouse have been self-employed for less than 12 months, it is based on the whole time You or Your Spouse were self-employed. If You or Your Spouse’s practice is incorporated, net income includes the cost to You or Your Spouse’s company of fringe benefits and You or Your Spouse’s share of total surplus. Income does not include investment returns, rents, royalties, and the like income which is not directly produced from Your or Your Spouse’s current work.

Pre-disability Earnings means: if You or Your Spouse are not self-employed, You or Your Spouse’s regular monthly rate of pay, not counting commissions, bonuses, tips and tokens, overtime pay or any other fringe benefits or extra compensation, in effect on the last day You or Your Spouse were Actively at Work before You or Your Spouse became Disabled.

Pre-Existing Condition Limitation:

Conditions Prior to Effective Date: We will not pay a Benefit for any loss or period of Total Disability which: begins during the first 24 months of your insurance; and is a result of a Pre-Existing Condition unless such Total Disability begins after You have been free of Medical Care for the condition for a 12 month period ending any time on or after Your effective date..

Pre-Existing Condition means any Disability, diagnosed or undiagnosed, for which medical care is received by you: within the 12-month period prior to your effective date of insurance, or prior to any increase in coverage.

Except for the 14 days or less that You work, You must be Totally Disabled by the same condition for the total Elimination Period.

Periods of Disability: 1) due to the same or related medical causes; and 2) separated by less than 6 months during which You are Actively-at-Work will be considered one Period of Disability.

Periods of Disability separated by at least 6 months during which You are Actively-at-Work will be considered separate Periods of Disability.

Benefits during any Period of Disability as the result of: 1) more than one Sickness; or 2) more than one Injury; or 3) both Sickness and Injury; will be considered the same as if the Disability resulted from only one cause.

Disclosure to Third Parties

This website does not sell or rent any of your personal information to affiliates or unaffiliated third parties. We will not share any of your personal information with third parties except in the circumstances described below or with your permission.

 We disclose personal information with third parties or affiliates that we in good faith believe are appropriate to enable them to provide services to you and to contact you regarding additional products and/or services that you have expressed an interest.

 Cooperation in investigations of suspected fraud or other illegal activity, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or to conduct investigations of violations of the -site’s Terms of Use or the Terms of Service Agreement, or as otherwise required by law. This may also include protecting and defending the rights, property, or safety of AGIA, other users of this Site or responding to claims that any content violates the rights of third parties.

 Certain federal, state and local laws or government regulations may require us to disclose non-public personal information about you. In these circumstances, we will use reasonable efforts to disclose only the information required by law, subpoena or court order to be disclosed.

 We disclose information to your agent or legal representative (such as the holder of a power of attorney that you grant, or a guardian appointed for you).

 As with any other business, it is possible that in the future we could merge with or be acquired by another company. If such an acquisition occurs, the successor company would have access to personal information maintained by us, including customer account information, but would continue to be bound by this Privacy Policy unless and until it is amended.

 As otherwise permitted by federal or state law.

Do Not Track

 Some internet browsers offer the user a “Do Not Track” technology.  The Do Not Track (DNT) header is the HTTP header field DNT that requests that a web application disable either its tracking or cross-site user tracking of an individual user.  At the current time, this Site does not have the capability of recognizing a “Do Not Track” request.

Email

 The website does not automatically recognize your e-mail address. You only receive e-mail from us if you check a box indicating an interest in a particular e-list or if you provide an e-mail address for a customer service inquiry and need an answer via e-mail. We collect the e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us via e-mail and online forms, including those who specifically check a box to subscribe on our online forms (for example, request for information on this website). Any user who signs up for e-mails can unsubscribe or manage his/her subscription by linking to the personal URL e-mailed to all subscribers. Every e-mail sent also includes information about how to stop receiving e-mails from us.

 We do not share the e-mail addresses we collect with similar benefits organizations.

Links to Other Sites

 For the convenience of our visitors and customers, this website may contain links to other sites. While we generally try to link only to sites that share similar high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the content, products or services offered or the privacy and security practices employed by these other sites.

 AGIA is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of linked websites or their use. Once you leave the Site using an external link, you should refer to those websites’ privacy policies, terms of use, and practices in order to evaluate how they will handle any information they collect from you.

California Consumer Privacy Act and California Privacy Rights Act: Privacy Policy for California Residents

  This section of the Privacy Policy describes the rights of California residents under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) and the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (“CPRA”). The CCPA and CPRA requires that we provide privacy information to California residents and we use this separate section to ensure compliance with the CCPA and CPRA requirements. This section applies solely to natural persons residing in California (“Consumers”), and does not apply to individuals living elsewhere, businesses or other corporate entities.

Sale of Personal Information

  Personal Information is information that identifies, relates to or could reasonably be linked with a particular California resident or household. We do not sell your personal information.  The CCPA and CPRA requires disclosure of this fact.

Your Rights Under the California Consumer Privacy Act and California Privacy Rights Act

Right to Confirm or Access Information

  You may have the right to confirm whether we process certain information or what information we process, and to obtain a copy of that information in a format that allows you to transmit the information to another business without difficulty.

  Once we receive and confirm your identity and verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you the following at your direction (with various exceptions):

a)  The categories of personal information we collected about you in the last 12 months;

b)  The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you in the last 12 months;

c)  Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information;

d)  The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information;

e)  The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you;

f)  If we sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose a list of the personal information types that each category of recipient purchased; and

g)  If we disclosed your personal information to a third party for a business purpose, a list of the personal information types that each category of recipient received.

Right to Delete Personal Information

  You have the right to request that AGIA delete any of your personal information we collected from you and retained, with certain exceptions. You will need to submit a valid and verifiable request so AGIA can confirm your identity and/or authorization to make such a request. AGIA will determine if retaining the information is permitted or required under the law. If no retention conditions apply, we will delete your personal information from our records and direct any Service Providers to do the same.

Right to Correct Personal Information

  Taking into consideration the nature of the personal information and the purposes of the processing of your personal information, you may have the right to correct inaccuracies in such information. Upon submission to AGIA of a valid and verifiable request where your identity and authorization can be confirmed, AGIA will use all reasonable efforts to correct the inaccurate information.

Right to Limit Processing of Sensitive Personal Information

  AGIA processes sensitive personal information only as necessary in performance of our services to ensure the security and integrity of your information or as otherwise specified under regulation. Because AGIA does not process your sensitive personal information for other purposes, there is not a mechanism for you to limit the processing of this information.

Right to Opt-Out of Profiling

  AGIA does not engage in automated processing of personal information to make decisions that yield legal or other material consequence. Because we do not engage in this processing, AGIA does not provide a mechanism for you to limit our processing of personal information in this manner.

Right to Opt-Out

  AGIA does not sell your personal information; therefore we do not provide a mechanism for you to limit our processing of personal information in such a manner.

Right to Non-Discrimination

  AGIA will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA or CPRA. Examples of discrimination could be charging you inflated rates by imposing penalties or granting discounts or other benefits, denying you goods or services or providing you a different level of quality of goods or services.

  Any acts of discrimination are prohibited by the CCPA and CPRA and AGIA will not engage in them.

Personal Information We Collect, Sources and How We Use It

  In our Privacy Policy, sections titled, “Personal Information We Collect”, “How We Use Your Personal Information”, and “AGIA Personal Information Processing” outline the personal information we collect, its sources and how we use it for all consumers we interact with, including California residents. In effect, it is used to provide and manage products and services we provide and support our everyday operations, including risk management, legal and compliance requirements.

Exercising Your Rights as a California Consumer

  You, or a person authorized by you to act on your behalf, or an entity registered with the California Secretary of State and authorized by you to act on your behalf, can make a request regarding your personal information under the CCPA and CPRA. You may also make a request on behalf of your minor child.

  If you would like to exercise your right to request a copy of your personal information or your right to delete your personal information, please contact AGIA customer service by calling (800) 424-5181, by email at compliance@agia.com, or utilize regular mail by using the following address:
