What is Long-term Disability Insurance?

Long-Term Disability Insurance (LTD) covers a portion of your income while you are disabled for an extended period of time. This coverage can help you avoid the financial interruption that a covered injury or illness may have on your life.

Additional benefits include:

Workplace modification
To assist you with necessary work-place modifications to accommodate your return to work, benefits are available that reimburse your employer for reasonable expenses related to the modifications.

Family care credit
If, while disabled, you incur family care expenses in order to participate in an approved rehabilitation program, we will reduce the earnings used to determine benefits.

Survivor benefit
If you have been disabled and received benefits under the policy, for at least 180 consecutive days, in the event of your death during that period of disability, your spouse or dependent children will receive a lump sum benefit equal to three times the last monthly LTD benefit paid for your disability.

Employee Assistance Program
To cope with life’s challenges, you and your family may choose to receive behavioral health, financial, and legal consultation from qualified professionals. This program is confidential and provides personalized guidance on issues that affect one’s emotions, health, job, and life.
