If You Don’t Understand Why Employers Drop Short Term Disability You May Hate Yourself
Because of the lingering recession many employers are dropping short term disability coverage or asking that you pay a part of you disability insurance premium.
A vast majority of disabilities last less than one year and that’s why it’s important that you have short term disability insurance to provide disability income protection. While many people believe that they can rely on Social Security if they become disabled, Social Security only covers illnesses if they are expected to last more than one year. Even worse, only 36% of applicants are approved on their first request for benefits.
You can’t rely on Social Security Disability benefits and it’s important that you continue to pay your premium for Short Term Disability benefits. If catastrophe strikes and you find yourself without any income because of a disabling injury or illness, short term disability benefits will assist you through this crisis.
