Group Disability Insurance

Financial protection for the unexpected.

Our flexible policy designs and consultative approach help ensure your groups get the coverage they need at a price that fits their budget.

When a disability or leave of absence occurs, a dedicated Symetra Case Manager is assigned for the life of the case, providing clear communication on the claims process while fostering a trusting relationship with the employer, claimant and treating physician.
