Donation Insurance Donation Life & Disability Coverage
Donors protected by Donor Shield are automatically given a donor life insurance policy and a donor disability policy. The donor life insurance carries a $1,000,000 principal amount. The donor disability insurance policy covers missed work related to any kidney donation complications that may arise. The disability policy includes up to $1,500 per week in coverage for up to 365 days after surgery subject to the donor’s last 12 months of earnings and a 30-day waiting period.
* Donors must participate in an NKR swap or donate at a Donor Shield Direct center to receive this protection.
