Frequently Asked Questions
1. What’s disability insurance?
Disability insurance pays you a portion of your income loss if you’re unable to work due to disability. You must look at your policy to see if you’re covered by short or long-term disability plans or both.
2. What’s short-term disability (STD)?
STD provides disability payments following a short waiting period. The length of time the payments will continue will be set out in the policy, but normally they’re for a limited time only, often three to six months. Once your STD coverage is completed, you may have access to long-term disability (LTD) benefits.
3. What’s long-term disability (LTD)?
To qualify initially for LTD benefits, you must normally be unable to perform the essential duties of your own occupation. The own-occupation test usually applies for two years. To qualify beyond that time, you must generally prove an inability to perform the essential duties of any occupation you’d be suited for by reason of education, training or experience (any-occupation test). The time limits for which benefits are payable, as well as the applicable tests and when they apply, are detailed in the policy. Reviewing these documents carefully is essential.
