Disability insurance provides partial income so you can pay your bills if you get too sick or injured to work. Disability happens to more people, more often than you may think. In fact, more disabilities are caused by illness than injury, including common conditions like heart disease and arthritis, and most disabilities are not covered by Workman’s Compensation.1
Some employers will offer short and long-term disability benefits to their employees. A short-term policy helps you immediately after an incident, and a long-term policy helps provide financial protection for disabilities that can last for years. You can also pay for additional coverage on top of the benefits you get at work to help provide extra financial protection.
