If you miss work due to an injury or illness, long-term disability insurance can help replace a portion of your lost wages. Long-term disability coverage begins after your claim is approved and you satisfy an elimination period.

How does long-term disability insurance work?

Your employer pays you while you're working; Lincoln pays you while you're not working due to a covered disability. You decide how benefits are used — food, utilities, car payments or even a night at the movies — just as you would your regular paycheck. Benefits continue for a specific period of time or until you are no longer disabled.

We help you get back to work.

  • Progressive Partial Disability Benefit: If you're only able to do part of your job or return to work part-time, you can still receive a partial benefit.
  • Part-time earnings and a partial disability benefit could provide up to 100% of your predisability earnings.

Additional long-term disability benefits

  • Survivor Income Benefit: A lump sum is paid to your beneficiaries if you die while on disability.
  • Waiver of Premium: You don't have to pay premiums during periods of approved disability under our policy.

EmployeeConnectSM services

The advantages of group insurance:

  • Cost. This coverage is offered at group rates, which are often less expensive than rates for individual policies.
  • Convenience. Payroll deduction is simple and easy.
  • Confidence. You can choose the right coverage at work.
