Disability insurance replaces your income should you become disabled and unable to work. Many people have some form of disability insurance through their employer. The employers' policy may not be just what your need. In this case, you will probably want to supplement the employer's policy with an individual policy of your own.
A steady income is essential for most people. If an accident or illness interrupts that income, it affects both the employee and employer. Short Term Disability (STD) protection is designed to replace a portion of the wages lost when a short term disability occurs. An affordable, flexible STD plan can provide needed benefits to both the employer and employee.
