Everyone needs protection

Support your employees and bottom line

If an employee becomes disabled, they could be out of work for a period of time. Without steady income, it often becomes harder to pay for everyday expenses, putting a strain on their family and adding more anxiety to an already difficult situation.

Disability insurance safeguards both sides by providing income protection in the event an employee is unable to work due to a common condition, such as:

  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Cancer
  • Heart attacks and strokes
  • Back and joint disorders
  • Accidents and fractures

With a financial safety net, disability insurance can help your employees and company focus on success rather than worry about "what-ifs."


More than half of U.S. consumers worry they would not be able to support themselves if they became disabled and couldn’t work.1
