Life & Disability Benefits
Eligible employees are offered company-paid Life and AD&D insurance in the event of your sudden passing, accidental death or dismemberment. If your death is caused by an accident, the plan includes an “Accident Death & Dismemberment” feature that pays an extra benefit. Basic Life and AD&D benefits are reduced as you age.
Employee Assistance Program
We know that life doesn’t always go according to plan and that’s why we offer an important employee benefit called the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) through Mutual of Omaha. Employees can receive up to six (6) free face-to-face counselling sessions in the area in which you live.

What do you need to know after you’ve made a request?
- DBM and GrayWolf employees will be notified by AbsencePro each time they receive documentation for your absence. A decision packet will be sent via your preferred communication method within 48 hours of receipt of the documentation.
- When AbsencePro doesn’t receive documentation for your absence in time, they will send a reminder that your certification deadline is coming up and a decision packet once the deadline has passed. You can still submit paperwork after the deadline – it will process it according to your company’s policy regarding late paperwork, which may result in your absence being delayed or denied.
