Short Term & Long Term Plans Available
Individual Short-Term Disability (accident and sickness)
Short-term Disability Insurance may be right for your client if:
* They want immediate coverage from the first day of disability *They only need coverage until their employer-provided disability insurance would begin paying benefits * They are interested in protection that is portable, not tied to a job * They are willing to accept a shorter benefit period to keep the premium as low as possible
Individual Short-Term Disability will pay a monthly benefit if your client is unable to work due to a disabling accident or sickness. You can tailor the policy by selecting the elimination period, benefit period and optional riders that would best meet your client’s needs.
Based on a portion of current income. Maximum monthly base benefit is $5,000.
0/7 (accident/sickness), 7, 0/14, 14, 30, 60 or 90 days

Premium rate is level until age 67. Insured may continue coverage until age 75 (premiums will increase annually after age 67.)
Base Benefits included in the Short-term DI plan:
Total Disability Income Benefit
If an injury or illness prevents the insured from performing the duties of their regular job, and are not gainfully employed in another occupation, insured will be paid a monthly benefit once the elimination period has been met.

The insurance company cannot cancel this policy, up to age 67, as long as the insured pays the premium when due.
