Disability insurance plans help you when you can't work for weeks or months at a time due to an injury, pregnancy or illness. Just as medical coverage helps to pay doctor and hospital bills, disability coverage helps protect your income for housing, food and other needs.
You must miss a certain number of work days before disability pay starts. This is called an “elimination period” or a "waiting period." Employees usually take these missed days as paid sick time or vacation. Your employer's benefits administrator can help you determine when your disability coverage begins.
Your disability benefit is usually a percentage of your income. Your employer’s benefits administrator can give you details.
We want to help you get back to work as soon as you can. If you need special devices or training to perform your job again, we can assign a case manager and a rehabilitation consultant to ease your transition back into the workplace.
Talk to your benefits administrator to find out which Aetna disability insurance plans and services are available to you.
