In addition to covering an accidental loss, TSRI has provided for a rider to the plan which provides coverage if an employee were hurt or killed as the result of acts of war (war risk rider). Certain countries are considered high risk and as such are excluded from this coverage. However, for an additional premium war risk coverage is available for excluded countries with advance notification to the insurance company. TSRI will continue to pay the additional premium for coverage in the excluded countries. Please contact Benefits Administration for more information on the excluded countries and the procedure to follow for coverage in those countries.
