What is Short-term disability?

Short-term disability is an insurance outcome that gives a payment of a percentage of an employee’s or worker’s salary. This can be for a particular period of time if the worker or employees is not able to carry out all or some of their job role. Typically between the numbers 50 per cent and 70 per cent of the salary is offered, with additional short-term disability benefits.

Before this coverage starts within some companies their policies require employees to use their sick days, this is usually between one and fourteen days after the person fell sick or injured. Certainly, if it is a long-term illness or disability.

An employer or employee can cover the salary of short-term disability and it can also be self-funded, this is normally in the case of a larger employer.
