USAlliance Group Short-Term Disability Insurance Overview
What is Short-Term Disability Insurance?
Short-term disability insurance is designed to replace a portion of an employee’s income in the event the employee is unable to work due to an illness or accident. The benefit typically pays the employee between 60 to 66.6% of their employee’s salary. Benefits typically become effective 1 to 21 days after an illness or accident occurs and may continue for 13 to 26 weeks. Premiums for a short-term disability policy can be paid by the employer or the employee.
By helping protect an employee’s income, you protect your investment in the employee. Short-term disability insurance contributes to employee security, loyalty, and higher satisfaction at work.
