What is the difference between long term disability insurance and accidental death and dismemberment insurance?
Long Term Disability policies cover you if you are put in a nursing home or need to have a nurse come to your home regardless of how you were put there. Accidental Death and Dismemberment policies are usually attached to auto policies and they pay you and your family money if you are killed or lose limbs in an automobile accident.

It should, as long as your past the 2 year incontestiblity period. The best way to find out is to read the policy.
READ YOUR POLICY . Most important: READ YOUR POLICY!!!!!!!!\n. \nMost policys prorate based on the severity of the dismemberment; i.e. If you policy is for 100,000 and yo…u lost a finger, you may get 250.00 (or 2500.00 for a thumb), but you would only get the whole 100,000.00 for loss of either both arms, or both legs.\n. \nThe bad thing is, after the policy pays, it usually cancels. In other words, if you pay 20 dollars a month for 10 years and end up getting paid for the loss of a finger (250.00) the policy is now void.\n. \nSo again: READ YOUR POLICY!!!!!

Would accidental death and dismemberment Insurance pay a claim due to an accidental death on a business trip?
It is difficult to say because it depends on the specific accidental death and dismemberment(AD&D) policy and it's insuring clause. There are many variations of coverage. You …have to look at the actual policy and see if the insuring clause limits coverage in any way such as flight accident only or common carrier, or public conveyance, etc. You then have to look at the policy exclusions to see if any specific circumstances are excluded.
In what circumstances would accidental death and dismemberment insurance pay if death occured while cutting grass had a heart attack?
Unless the insured had no prior cardiac health related events, an AD&D policy would NOT pay because a heart attack would be considered an illness or medical condition. Howev…er, if the operator of the mower were cut by its blades and subsequently had a heart attack it is likely that payment would occur. Be sure to check for a clause in the policy regarding "improper operation of equipment" as an exclusion. If an improper operation of equipment clause existed, being cut by the blades would only be honored if the equipment was manufacturered improperly. . The long story short is that AD&D policies are EXTREMELY profitable and the option to cover or deny a particular claim is up the insurer. In a weakened, injured or near death position, the insured is not likely to be able to benefit from a prolonged civil suit against the insurance company.... therefore the actual payment (even in clearly defined cases) is often a fraction of the policy's face value. A quick settlement is usually more enticing than a full payment protracted over 18 months of courtroom battles. . Spend the money on better health, life and auto insurance and you'll come out ahead statistically speaking.

Exactly that ... accidental death (not from natural causes). As for dismemberment, some policies allow partial compensation for losing a foot or a hand, or maybe for an eye. … Having stated the above, please bear in mind that this is not a blanket answer that will apply to each and every AD&D insurance coverage.
