What is Covered Under an Occupational Accident Policy?
Occupational Accident is an insurance policy that insures independent contractors against covered injuries that happen in connection with work done with Curri. Occupational Accident provides benefits for medical expenses, disability, loss of life, survivor payments, dismemberment, and paralysis for covered injuries directly caused by an accident on the job.
Do I have to sign up or enroll to be covered?
No - enrollment is required, so you are obtaining benefits during the period you are driving with Curri. You can opt-out of the coverage if you currently have a worker's compensation policy in place already.
What Benefits are Included With Occupational Accidents?
Accident Medical Expense
Up to a maximum of $1,000,000
Up to a maximum of $350,000
Up to a maximum of $50,000 + $1,500 / month for 200 months

ACCIDENTAL MEDICAL EXPENSE
Subject to policy limits, covered injuries that require Physician treatment and/or medical services that include but are not limited to: physician services, inpatient hospital and ICU stays and services, prescription drugs, ambulance transportation, lab tests, radiology, therapy services, durable medical equipment, extended care facilities, and home health care.
A covered injury that results in death within 365 days will pay a lump sum payment.
If an Accidental Death Benefit is payable under the policy, your surviving spouse or dependent children will receive benefits to a maximum monthly amount. You can designate an alternative beneficiary at your request. Please contact Bunker for a form.
You will receive monthly benefits for specifically covered injuries resulting in the loss of certain body parts. Benefits are paid monthly depending on the covered injury.
Please Note: Accidental Death, Survivors Benefit, Accidental Dismemberment, and Paralysis benefits are reduced if you are age 65 or over.
Am I Covered Under the Occupational Accident Policy?
If you are a U.S. independent contractor who suffered an injury while performing a service on or after September 16, 2020, you are covered under the policy.
I’ve already provided my services as an independent contractor on the Platform before the Occupational Accident Insurance launch date. Does Occupational Accident Insurance apply to me?
Beginning September 16, 2020, all U.S. independent contractors using the Curri Platform will be automatically covered by Occupational Accident Insurance. This policy does not retroactively provide coverage for covered injuries sustained in an accident prior to the aforementioned effective date.
I was injured while performing a job for a competing service; will this policy cover that?
No. This policy only covers independent contractors while performing a service on the Curri platform.
