Long-term disability insurance

When disability keeps an employee out of work for an extended period of time, long-term disability insurance helps protect their finances and provide support as they return to the workplace. Employers can choose from a variety of plans and customize coverage with cost-containment features and other options.

Full benefits

  • Employees can earn up to 100% of pre-disability income through partial-disability employment.
  • Total or partial disability can satisfy the elimination period.
  • When appropriate, vocational rehabilitation professionals create personalized programs to help claimants return to work.
  • Our standard reporting package provides key claims information 24/7 online or by email.
  • Employers and employees enjoy easy access to claims, important documents such as certificates, and claims management by phone, IVR, web, fax, email or mail.

Flexible options

  • A choice of plan designs with generous maximums
  • Employer- or employee-paid coverage
  • Optional reimbursement benefits allow employees to:  
    • Pay for workplace accommodations
    • Pay towards COBRA health insurance
    • Add to their retirement savings even when a disability prevents them from earning an income
    • Protect the value of their income replacement from rising prices
  • A Conversion Privilege allows employees to purchase individual long-term disability coverage when they leave their job for reasons other than disability or retirement
