Does your employer provide disability insurance to ensure coverage if you are injured and unable to work? If they do, does it cover all of your time away from your job? These are important considerations for anyone thinking about purchasing disability insurance. You may need disability insurance even more than you think; it is not something that you want to leave to your employer. While worker’s compensation is mandated by law, not all states require disability insurance. In fact, disability insurance is only required by law in Rhode Island, New Jersey, New York and Hawaii. In those states, employers must provide workers with up to 26 weeks of disability insurance coverage.
If your employer does not provide sufficient disability insurance coverage, or none at all, The Marcus Group can help. We offer comprehensive disability lines.
