Disability insurance is one of your most valuable group benefits. It protects your earning ability, which could be your most important asset. If you are unable to work because of injury or illness, you can count on us for timely decisions, practical, caring support and assistance throughout any claims appeal process.
Your group benefits plan is customized to provide the disability coverage you need, as cost-effectively as possible. In most instances, during the qualifying period and the following 24 months, you are considered disabled if, because of illness or injury, you are unable to perform the significant duties of your regular assignment. After this 24-month period, you are considered disabled if, because of illness or injury, you are unable to be gainfully employed.
For complete details about your plan, please log in to our secure self-service portal and refer to your plan contract.
