All U-M faculty and staff members traveling in the U.S. and internationally on official University of Michigan business (excluding everyday travel to and from work) are provided coverage for accidental death or permanent total disability. You do not have to enroll in the Business Travel Accident plan. The university pays the full cost and enrollment is automatic.
