Disability benefits for your employees
Coverage when it counts
Protect your business and support your employees with short-term and long-term disability plans
What are disability benefits?
There may be times when a disability causes an employee to be unable to work. To help both your employees and your business through times like these, we offer 2 types of disability plans - short-term disability (STD) and long-term disability (LTD).
Why offer disability benefits?
Disability coverage offers your employees the financial and emotional support they need to recover and return to work.
Offering the right support at the right time can help keep your employees and your workplace healthy and productive, while still supporting those employees who need to be absent because of a disability.
It can also help to prevent claims altogether, with some plans offering tools and online resources available to support employee wellbeing.
With you every step of the way
We’re as committed to your employee’s wellbeing as you are. Our disability plans take a holistic approach to preventing disability and managing claims:
We offer resources and support to help employees stay healthy and prevent health-related absences.
We’ll work with employees who have made a claim to help them recover and get back on the job.
Return to work
Support is available to help employees return to work after a short-term or long-term absence.
Dedicated claims support
Our dedicated support teams are available to help your employees with every stage of a short-term or long-term disability claim:
