Accident Insurance

About Our Federal Employee Accident Insurance

Accidents happen. You may not be able to prevent them, but now you can be financially protected with Starr Wright USA’s Accidental Death & Dismemberment Insurance designed for federal employees.

We have worked with our affiliate Starr Indemnity & Liability Company to develop an accident insurance program to fit the needs of federal employees. Starr Wright USA enables you to choose the level of coverage to fit your needs at affordable rates. We offer coverage for accidental death and accidental dismemberment with an added benefit for covered exposure and covered disappearance. Accident insurance coverage is also available for your spouse and/or children from Starr Wright USA.

These are individually-issued policies, so your coverage is portable. You can keep it even if you change jobs or retire (as long as you pay premiums when due and meet all other requirements of the policy). Starr Indemnity & Liability Company is an “A” rated insurance company by A.M. Best Company.
