The Hidden Puzzle Piece

When you think about employee benefits, health insurance and PTO probably spring to mind. But disability coverage? It’s easy to forget this piece of your benefits plan. But it’s a key part of completing your employees’ financial wellness puzzle.

Disability insurance pays part of a sick or injured employee’s salary when they can’t work. But it should do more. Coverage that comes with personalized, holistic support can actually help employees stay at work or get back to work faster.
