Guardian Life Insurance Company of America is making a benefits value rollover option available for another type of product.
The New York-based company has built a Rainy Day Fund value rollover feature into its voluntary accident insurance policy.
A worker who buys a new Guardian Accident Insurance policy can use up to $500 from the fund each year to cover insurable costs beyond the policy’s coverage limitations. A worker could, for example, use the $500 to pay for extra physical therapy sessions, Guardian says.
A worker who avoids using all of the $500 in one year can keep the unused value in the Rainy Day Fund. A worker can accumulate up to $1,000 in fund value, according to Guardian.

The Rainy Day Fund feature is now a standard accident insurance policy feature, Guardian says.
Guardian has been offering a benefits value rollover feature with its dental insurance since 2010.
Guardian has also added an optional Injury-Free Benefit feature.
That feature will pay the employee a cash benefit if the employee’s family stays claim-free for five years, Guardian says.
