MetLife – The Value of Disability Benefits
MetLife – The Value of Disability BenefitsNovember 11, 2019
Let’s face it, nobody wants to think about becoming disabled and unable to work. But it happens. In fact, one in four of today’s 20-year-olds will become disabled before reaching age 67.1
Short- and long-term disability options that help employees replace a portion of their income, in the event of a disability, while providing support that helps them return to work as soon as possible, can be a game-changer for employees and employers.
For employees, the ability to work and earn a living is one of the most valuable assets they have. An extended illness, injury or pregnancy leave can create significant financial gaps when it comes to covering ongoing expenses like house payments or rent, groceries, or childcare – especially when you consider half of employees say they’re living paycheck-to-paycheck.2
Knowing disability coverage is in place provides more than peace of mind. It also allows the disabled employee to focus on recovery, rather than financial concerns. For business owners, this can be key.
Companies rely on having a productive workforce. Return-to-work incentives and rehabilitation support features also provide valuable elements that help both employees and employers maximize productivity. These features can include support related to family care expenses or moving expenses if relocation is recommended for rehabilitation.
