Employee-paid short-term disability

Short-Term Disability insurance provides income assistance and a way to help pay bills and keep life as normal as possible when an insured is sick or injured and cannot work. A short-term disability policy pays benefits for illnesses or injuries that are not job related when an insured qualifies under an "own occupation" definition of disability or meets an 80% earnings test.
