Amherst College provided insurance coverage for a faculty member who is killed or totally disabled as a result of accidental circumstances while traveling on College business away from the normal place of work. The coverage provides for a $300,000 death benefit per individual with a catastrophic limit of $1,500,000 for any one accident. The employee's estate receives the death benefit.

These are only the essential features of the plan; details are available in the Office of Human Resources.
