Short Term Disability

Short Term Disability (STD) Insurance provides a source of income for employees who temporarily cannot work due to a disability. With a focus on returning them to work, claim managers make quick and accurate decisions that allow employees to focus on recovery instead of paperwork.

We can help reduce your administrative burden and minimize your costs with:

  • Flexible funding options
  • Customizable benefit plan options
  • State-mandated disability plan management
  • Employer and employee portals that provide easy access to claim information
  • Seamless claim transition to Long Term Disability for integrated disability plans

Long Term Disability

Long Term Disability (LTD) Insurance replaces a portion of an employee’s income when they are unable to work for an extended period of time due to a disability. Because every claim is unique, claim managers regularly assess work capacity and engage in-house clinical and vocational resources to help address medical and non-medical barriers to recovery and a return to work and/or a Return to Life.

Expect consistent, rigorous, and strategic case management via our capacity validation model. And our automated waiver of premium integration for customers who also have our Life Insurance products eases plan management and administration.
