Many Americans put their financial security at risk because they believe a disability will never happen to them. Consider this:
What does Disability Insurance Provide?
A group disability insurance policy provides an inexpensive way to help protect your income, your family, and yourself from loss due to an unexpected illness or injury.
* If you elect the 30 day plan, benefits from day 30 to day 90 will be paid on a weekly basis to a maximum of $3,462 under a Short Term Disability policy. After 90 days of disability, benefits are paid monthly through a Long Term Disability plan as described above.
** Social Security Normal Retirement Age means your normal retirement age under the Federal Social Security Act, as amended. Please reference the open enrollment brochure for the maximum benefit schedule for participants over age 62.
*** A "catastrophic disability" is one that causes the loss of two of six Activities of Daily Living or a severe cognitive impairment. Catastrophic loss benefits pay after 90 days of disability and must occur while you are eligible for disability benefits.
