Visa Guide to Benefits; or, In Good Hands (or Feet, or Any Combination Thereof)

As a Visa Cardholder, you, your spouse or domestic partner and your dependent child(ren) will be automatically insured against accidental loss of life, limb, sight, speech or hearing while riding as a passenger in, entering or exiting any licensed common carrier, provided the entire cost of the passenger fare(s), less redeemable certificates, vouchers, coupons, has been charged to your Visa account. 
[...]
The full Benefit Amount is payable for accidental loss of life, two or more members, sight of both eyes, speech and hearing or any combination thereof.  One half of the Benefit Amount is payable for accidental loss of: one member, sight of one eye, speech or hearing.  "Member" means hand or foot.  One quarter of the Benefit Amount is payable for the accidental loss of the thumb and index finger of the same hand.  "Loss" means, with respect to a hand, complete severance throughout or above the knuckle joints of at least 4 fingers on the same hand; with respect to a foot, complete severance through or above the ankle joint.  The Company will consider it a loss of hand or foot even if they are later reattached.

Wow. But who gets the benefits after you die? Your spouse or your domestic partner?

In that case, they drop the money (small denominations, unmarked bills) from low-flying aircraft above the general vicinity of the accident in question.

Either that, or it goes to your estate. One or the other.

The should put it in one of those glass boxes and have your catty significant others take turns grabbing as many hundreds as they can in forty seconds.
