To replace income lost due to an accident, illness, or injury.
With so many people living paycheck to paycheck these days, even a temporary loss of income can disrupt a family’s lifestyle and financial security. That’s why group disability insurance can be a tremendous source of comfort for many working families.
The benefits of disability insurance.
Group disability insurance helps provide financial stability and added peace of mind by replacing lost income if a person falls ill or becomes injured and cannot work for an extended period of time. And, unlike workers’ compensation, this economical coverage pays a benefit even if the illness, injury, or accident takes place at home.
