Help Protect Your Paycheck and Your Lifestyle

Short-Term Disability Insurance

If you receive a paycheck, here's a way to protect your earned income. A short-term disability policy offers you income protection to help cover monthly expenses (such as mortgage, rent, utilities, or car loan) if you're unable to work because of a total disability due to illness or injury.

Policy options are designed especially for short-term disability. They include one- and three-year benefit periods, with a monthly benefit amount ranging from $300 to $3,000 (subject to your income and occupation class).

Do You Have the Resources Today?

Using Savings

Savings accounts can serve as a temporary safety net, but most people haven't saved enough. A disability policy can provide a longer-term solution. According to the 2014 Consumer Disability Awareness Study, 57 percent surveyed said they had enough savings to pay their bills for 6 months or less.

Collecting Social Security

Because the definition of disability is very strict (the disability must be expected to last 12 months or more, or result in death), 65 percent of all claims submitted are denied. In 2016, the average Social Security benefit amount was $1,166 per month.***
