Symetra Supplemental Insurances

Hendrix College offers full-time employees a variety of supplemental insurances beyond standard health and welfare offerings such as health, dental and vision.  Here we provide a brief look at what those benefits are. If you don't find what you're looking for, please contact our Benefits Manager, Lisa Hankins (

Life Insurance - Full-time employees automatically receive one times their annual salary in life insurance starting the first day of the month following their hire date. In addition, a supplemental term life policy is available for additional coverage on employees and their families. If this coverage is not added while a new employee, it can be added during the open enrollment period and enrollees must complete evidence of insurability. If you need to update your beneficiary, you can complete the Change of Beneficiary form and email it to Human Resources.

Short Term Disability (STD) & Long Term Disability (LTD) - This benefit provides 60% of gross average wages for work missed due to an injury or illness (see policy book for more detailed description). This coverage is available to new employees with guaranteed coverage. Employees who add this coverage during open enrollment must complete evidence of insurability forms. If you need a claim form or have questions about this insurance, please email Lisa Hankins.

Critical Illness - This insurance provides supplemental coverage for critical illnesses to provide additional financial protection when facing illness. This insurance can be added by new employees or during the open enrollment period.

Accident Insurance - This insurance provides coverage against the unexpected costs resulting from an accident. This insurance can be added by new employees or during the open enrollment period.
