Disability Insurance

High quality Disability Insurance products covering total or partial disability of professionals, business executives, small business owners and others.

Disability Insurance protects your most valuable asset, your ability to earn an income. A long-term disability could suspend or terminate your income for an extended period of time. It may force you to close your business. Tri-Town offers a breadth of Disability Insurance products to provide a source of income in the event of a disability.

Small Group Short Term Disability Insurance replaces a percentage of your employees’ pre-disability earnings up to a maximum benefit on a weekly basis. It provides weekly benefits for disabilities lasting up to 26 weeks and is available to you if you have three to nine employees.

Maximum Benefit

Up to 60% of pre-disability earnings can be paid as the benefit, with a maximum of $500 weekly for groups of three to four lives and $1,000 weekly for groups with five to nine lives.

You may also choose from two maximum benefit time periods, either 13 or 26 weeks.

Rate Guarantee Period

The rate you pay to insure your employees is guaranteed to remain the same for one year. Changes in the premium could occur, however, if an employee enters a new five-year age band, or experiences an increase or decrease in pre-disability earnings. This can happen even during the one-year guarantee.

Beginning Date

The beginning date indicates the length of time an insured must be disabled before benefits begin to accrue. For a Small Group Short Term Disability policy, the number of days employees wait before the beginning date of their benefits accrual includes the days they are disabled or partially disabled.
