Term Life Insurance

Plans

As part of our commitment to providing ADA members and their families with outstanding coverage, we are pleased to announce enhanced Term Life coverage for dependent children. New in 2019, $15,000 of neonatal coverage for dependent children (birth through age 14 days) will be added to members' coverage at no additional cost. Optional dependent child coverage will now extend from age 15 days to 21 years of age (or to age 27 if a full-time student).

ADA Term Life can help you protect your family and grow your practice with low-cost, yearly renewable term insurance and premiums based on your life expectancy.

Available exclusively to ADA members, your Term Life Plan can be used to collateralize loans, fund buy-sell agreements, and provide income to your family/beneficiaries in case of your death. Since 1934, we have worked closely with dentists to design a plan that includes:

  • Premium Credit Discount*: A unique plan feature that reduces your premium
  • Volume discounts that reduce your premiums an additional 5%, 7%, or 9%
  • Preferred Rates for exceptionally healthy dentists
  • Up to $3,000,000 in coverage PLUS up to $1,000,000 of additional Accidental Death coverage
  • Renewability up to age 81
  • NEW: Neonatal coverage of $15,000 for dependent children from birth through age 14 days

Apply for Term Life Insurance for Dentists.

* Premium Credit discount shares favorable financial results with Plan participants; discount is not guaranteed but reevaluated semi-annually.


Rates

As an ADA member, whether you obtain coverage for just yourself or your whole family, you will pay our exclusive member-only rates.

You can view our Term Life rate chart for males (pdf) here and the Term Life rate chart for females (pdf) here. You’ll be able to compare Standard and Preferred rates by age as well as learn about the costs associated with our additional options. Or, obtain an Term Life premium quote for online.

Two types of ADA-member only discounts that impact your premium amount include:

  • ADA Premium Credit
    The ADA sponsors the group program, and the favorable claims experience is shared with the participants in the form of a Premium Credit discount.*
  • Volume Discount
    When you purchase $500,000 or more in total ADA Term Life and/or Term Plus® Universal life insurance coverage, you qualify for a volume discount that reduces your premiums an additional 5%, 7%, or 9%.

* Premium Credit discount shares favorable financial results with Plan participants; discount is not guaranteed but reevaluated semi-annually.


Features

Features designed for the long term

  • Renewable to age 81: Once your coverage is approved, and as long as you remain a member of the ADA and pay your premiums so your coverage doesn't lapse, you can keep it all the way to age 81.
  • Accelerated Death Benefit: Provides for advance payment of up to $200,000 of your death benefit if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness.

Options to meet your changing needs

Take advantage of the Plan's flexibility by customizing your insurance coverage with any of the following options:

  • Flexible coverage levels: Coverage ranges from $50,000 to $3,000,000 and can be adjusted as your needs change, based on underwriting approval. Any time before age 65, you can apply for additional insurance.
  • Spouse and dependent child coverage: Your spouse and dependent child(ren) are also eligible for ADA Term Life protection. Your spouse is eligible for as much as 100% of your coverage amount (up to a maximum of $1,000,000) with dependent child(ren) eligible for up to $15,000 in coverage.1
  • Accidental Death option: For a modest additional premium, this option can dramatically increase the value of your coverage by doubling the death benefit, up to a maximum of $1,000,000, if death is accidental as defined by the Plan. Your election of this option will automatically apply to any dependent coverage.
  • Disability Waiver of Premium option: Allows all coverage to continue without premium payment if you become totally disabled from all occupations before age 60.
  • Convertibility option: Should you decide in the future that you want coverage that builds cash values, you can convert some or all of your Term Life coverage for universal life insurance under the ADA Term Plus® Universal Life Plan at any time before age 65.

1Members who are under age 65 with unmarried children ages 15 days through 21 (27 if they are full-time students) can apply for $15,000 in dependent child coverage.
