This User Agreement ("Agreement") governs your use of this website to participate in services related to Income Assist®.
You must first register to access this website and you agree to use the website only for the purpose of administering your own website account or as a duly-appointed representative of a Covered Person's estate. We recommend reviewing your Income Assist® Policy or Certificate of Insurance for information on applicable coverage and claim limitations, as well as for restrictions that might impact your use of this website.
This website may change from time to time and this Agreement will be updated to reflect such changes accordingly. Your use of the website, as modified, constitutes your acceptance of any changes to this Agreement.
A. Managing Your Account Through Our Website
To access our website and manage your account, you will need a working connection to the Internet via a web browser on your computer. You are responsible for all costs, expenses and fees related to your access to the website.
We help you protect the security of your information by requiring you to authenticate your identity by way of a User ID and other factors, which may include a password, token and/or challenge questions ("Authentication Factors"). Once we have authenticated you the first time and you have set up your Authentication Factors (click here for information about our security practices), you will be able to do the following through our website each time you sign in:
B. Your Email Address
You agree to maintain or update the email address that you provide to us when you first register for a website account. We use your email address to communicate with you electronically. Email is not secure and you understand that there are risks associated with communicating via email, including the possibility of unauthorized access, failure to receive emails because they have been misdirected or sent to a spam folder, and your inability to access email due to power outages, hardware or software malfunctions or failures of your computer or mobile device, or matters affecting the Internet or your access to the Internet. Do not rely on email if you need to contact us immediately. For security reasons, we may not be able to respond to certain email requests.
C. Authentication and Security
We help you protect the security of your information by requiring you to authenticate your identity (i.e., prove that you are who you say you are) each and every time you sign in to your website account. You acknowledge and agree that you should not share your sign-in credentials with any other person, and that any use of your sign-in credentials will be relied upon by us, and shall constitute your authorization to complete any transactions that are requested. You agree that if you give your sign-in credentials and access to a recognized device to another, you are authorizing that person to transact on your behalf, and you are responsible for their activity on this website. This means that you must keep your sign-in credentials personal and confidential and not disclose this information to any other person. It is a good idea to protect your security by always closing your web browser after logging out of your website account.
