This benefit will be payable up to four years, for each insured dependent who is enrolled (or enrolls within 365 days of the accident) as a full-time student at an institution of higher learning (college, university or trade school). In addition, if no insured spouse or child qualifies for this benefit following the covered loss of the member's life, a lump sum benefit equal to 2% of the member's principal amount will be payable.

Only The Following Benefit Is Payable At Member Age 70 and After

Any Principal sum in excess of $100,000 will be reduced to $100,000. For those under age 70, the additional benefit for covered accidents is $25,000.
