Short-Term Disability

Bills and everyday needs don’t stop because someone can’t work. An accident or illness can endanger an individual’s most important asset: the ability to earn a living. Our Short-Term Disability (STD) plans pay benefits when sickness or injury prevents you from working full time. We offer STD programs tailored to meet the needs and cost expectations of both employers and employees.

Employer-Sponsored Group Plans & Voluntary Group Plans

  • Affordable premiums
  • Evidence of Insurability not required on most plans
  • Coverage for disabilities caused by accidents, illnesses and pregnancy
  • Benefits paid for Total or Partial Disability
  • Seamless claim transition from STD to LTD
  • Submit claims by phone

Absence Management Services

Managing a medical leave of absence can be challenging for both employers and employees.

That's why we’ve combined our disability products with FMLASource's expertise and experience to offer Absence Management Services. These services provide easy integration of our Short-Term Disability (STD) insurance and FMLA-related leaves.

The intake process for FMLA and STD can be started online or with a single phone call. Intake specialists manage cases from start to finish by:

  • Determining eligibility for STD and FMLA
  • Tracking FMLA absences concurrently with STD duration
  • Administering and managing return-to-work
  • Documenting compliance with state and federal requirements
