Short term disability
Short term disability is a valuable benefit that offers employees financial protection and peace of mind during temporary periods of illness or injury. This could be due to a woman needing maternity leave or an employee recovering from a surgery or accident.
This coverage will provide a portion of an employee’s salary for a limited duration, typically ranging from a few weeks to a few months. Costs associated with these plans will be driven by benefit amounts/duration as well as any elimination (waiting) periods, to name a few. Short term disability benefits can help employees manage their everyday expenses and financial responsibilities while they’re unable to work. By offering this type of coverage, employers demonstrate a next level commitment to the well-being of their workforce.
Long-term disability insurance is an essential protection that offers employees financial security in extended periods of incapacity due to illness or injury. This coverage ensures employees will receive a percentage of their salary if they are unable to work for an extended duration, typically this will begin after a short-term disability benefit has lapsed. Long-term disability benefits offer relief by assisting employees in meeting ongoing financial obligations. This would include mortgage payments, utility bills and other daily living expenses. Employees who are offered long term disability know that their employers are committed to supporting them during potentially difficult and uncertain times.
