Group Long-Term Disability Insurance

Coverage that provides a monthly income.

Group Long Term Disability is coverage that provides a monthly income.  If an employee is unable to work due to an accident and or sickness, group disability can provide coverage up to certain levels, regardless of health.

The cost is generally a blended rate based on the makeup of the group.  Group disability is generally provided at a dramatically lower price when compared to the cost of individual disability coverage.  The ability to offer coverage up to certain levels regardless of health is a huge benefit; many employees would not be able to get coverage without this feature.

Many say that Long-Term Disability is the best value offered among group benefits.
