Group life & disability insurance
Group disability insurance
Disabling accidents or illnesses can happen to anyone. And when they do, the financial effects of being unable to work can be difficult.
Disability insurance replaces a portion of an employee's income when they are unable to work due to an illness or injury so they can focus on what matters most—recovery.
Two coverage options
Choose one or both—whichever meets your needs:
Short-term disability insurance
Used when employees are unable to work for a shorter period of time, like after the birth of a child or a surgery.
Long-term disability insurance
For when employees are out for an extended amount of time, such as a life-altering illness or injury.
You have options
Choose whether employees pay part of the premium (contributory) or you cover all of the premium costs (noncontributory).
Protection and savings
When you purchase disability insurance at our group rate, you can provide employees with coverage at a typically lower cost than individual coverage.
Help your employees manage life’s challenges with:
• An Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
• A health care navigation program
Depending on your policy, your rates may be guaranteed to stay the same for as long as three years:
• 2-year rate guarantee (for short-term disability plans)2
• 3-year rate guarantee (for long-term disability plans)2
