Income protection or paycheck protection is one of those things that are important in case we are unable to work due to a disability. Subconsciously we all like to think it won’t happen to us. Like it or not, surveys have shown that up to 30% of all people in employment will, at one time or another, experience some form of disability which causes them to need time from work, whether that is short term, long term or recurring. Michael Sullivan Associates LLP offers the option to purchase short-term disability coverage, and long-term disability insurance is provided at no cost to our employees.
Voluntary Short-Term Disability (STD)
Our short-term disability program offered through Mutual of Omaha is a voluntary, employee-paid program and designed to replace a portion of your income in the event you become disabled from an injury or illness.
The weekly income benefit is calculated at 60% of your Weekly Covered Earnings up to a maximum of $2,307 per week, minus other income you may be receiving (i.e. Worker’s Comp, state disability income, Social Security Disability income, etc.). Benefits begin after the 7th day of accident or sickness. In the unfortunate circumstance that you remain disabled, this benefit could provide benefits for up to 25 weeks. Because the premiums for this program are paid with post-tax contributions, any benefit you may receive under the STD plan would be tax-free.
Long-Term Disability (LTD)
Our long-term disability program offered through Mutual of Omaha is 100% employer paid and designed to replace a portion of your income in the event that you become disabled from an injury or illness.
The monthly income benefit is calculated at 60% of your Basic Monthly Earnings or Total Compensation up to a maximum of $10,000 per month, minus other income you may be receiving (i.e. Worker’s Comp, state disability income, Social Security Disability income, etc.). Benefits begin after the 180th day of accident or sickness. In the unfortunate circumstance that you remain disabled, this benefit could provide benefits to your Social Security Normal Retirement Age (SSNRA).
