Group long-term disability plans provide basic income protection. The typical plan replaces about 60% of an employee’s base salary, does not cover bonus and incentive income and provides a benefit that is taxable.*
Benefit managers may wish to consider offering individual disability income (DI) insurance to help reduce the gap between pre- and post-disability income.
Features Available Only through the Worksite
Employees often look first to their employer for benefit options. You can help provide disability income protection through individual DI insurance with features available exclusively through the worksite.
- Simplified underwriting for eligible employees.
- Premium discount off MassMutual’s standard rates.
Employees can take the coverage with them if they leave your company and still retain the premium discount.
There is no cost to your company to offer coverage to your employees. It is offered on a voluntary basis; employees pay the premium.
Companies may choose to provide employer-paid coverage to select employees as part of their executive benefits package.
