Short Term Disability Insurance

Short Term Disability or Weekly Indemnity insurance, as it is often called, provides employees with protection against short term loss of income due to injury or illness. The WRLA group plan offers a competitively priced Short Term Disability program, at affordable group rates.

Short Term Disability Insurance can be formulated to match the needs of each participating WRLA member. Some of the more common features of a Short Term Disability program include:

1. Benefit payments begin on the 1st day of disability for accident/hospitalization or 8th day for sickness
2. Maximum benefit duration is typically 17 weeks
3. Benefit amounts range from 60%-70% of weekly income
