The benefits of disability insurance

Group disability insurance helps provide financial stability 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 valuable coverage pays a benefit even if the covered illness, injury, or accident takes place at home.
