Short Term Disability

Everyday injuries and illnesses interfere with your employees’ ability to work. Your employees’ paycheck helps them maintain their current lifestyle. If they find themselves unable to work, short-term disability coverage provides financial support while the employee is out of work.

Short-Term Disability coverage begins between 0-14 days after accident or injury and pays a percentage of the employee’s weekly income while the employee is out of work and unable to perform the duties of their job. Benefits period generally last anywhere from 9-52 weeks from eligibility. Coverage is available down to two lives and can be 100% voluntary (employee paid and no cost to the employer), employer paid or contributory from both employer and employee.
