You’ve been in a horrible accident that’s kept you out of work for several months.

Disability insurance is a benefit generally found in an employer’s benefits package. Long term disability insurance covers a portion of an employee’s income, normally about 50%-70%, if the employee is injured or becomes seriously ill and cannot work – usually kicking in after a short term disability policy runs out. On average, short term policies end about 26 weeks after an eligible event. It’s also important to note that if you’re hurt off the job, worker’s compensation does not cover you, which is why long term disability coverage is so crucial. Depending on the company’s plan, long term coverage could be paid in full by you, the employer or the cost could be divided between you and the company.
