The value of leave and income protection offered through disability insurance is more important than ever. Layoffs, furloughs, and reduced hours, due to COVID-19, have many workers worried about their income and benefits. According to the 18th Annual MetLife Annual U.S. Employee Benefit Trends Study 2020, more than half of employees are concerned about the pandemic’s effect on their financial health and holistic well being.
An April 2020 MetLife disability survey, amid the pandemic, revealed 50% of employees said employer-offered disability insurance would best support them or a loved one if out of work due to a serious illness or injury during COVID-19 or a future pandemic. However, one-third of the respondents said they don’t believe they have adequate disability coverage or family caregiver leave to feel protected.
Disability insurance can help cover an employees’ expenses if they’re out of work due to illness or injury, in addition to other return-to-work and wellness programs that can provide support when employees are returning after an absence or illness. Learn the three key considerations of disability insurance.
