  Long-Term & Short-Term Disability Coverage
The need for disability insurance can be summed up simply,
"Anyone can become sick or injured."
  Long-Term Disability

Long-term disability coverage is one of the most cost-effective ways to provide for the human and financial expense that occurrs when an employee suffers a lengthy disability. Consider the Social Security Administration study which stated that 19% of male insured workers and 15.3% of female insured workers who attained age 20 in 1986 will be unable to work for a certain period of time before they reach age 60. What type of plan does your school / ministry have in place when an employee is disabled for more than 90 days?

  Short-Term Disability
  Short-term disability coverage provides peace of mind because when an employee suffers a disability, often the loss of a paycheck can be equally debilitating. Generally, an employee is able to use vacation or sick leave to cover a short disability; however, many times short-term disability coverage is the only financial security that can prevent depletion of savings during a temporary time of need.

Disability coverage is one of the most cost-effective benefits an employer can offer.
