Help Close the Income Protection Coverage Gap
The long term disability insurance you offer your employees provides income protection — up to a point.
LTD insurance may replace up to 60 percent of an employee's base salary. But it’s often capped at a lower monthly amount. For highly compensated employees, this amount won't cover their income protection needs and will result in a coverage gap.
GSI insurance can help raise the coverage amount. This is especially appealing to high earners. A big plus is that bonuses, distributions and other incentive income are covered. Offering this valuable benefit is a way for you to attract and retain high-earning employees.
How GSI Can Help Reduce the Coverage Gap
