Understanding long-term disability
Accidents happen, and unfortunately, they can be devastating to an employee’s career. Fortunately, however, when a worker can no longer perform his or her job after sustaining a serious injury, long-term disability benefits may provide them with financial aid. As such, workers who have sustained serious injuries from their current work should know that they may be entitled to long-term disability payments from their employer.
Disabled workers should also understand that depending on the insurance plan of the disabled individual, long-term disability benefits usually cover about 50 to 70 percent of their previous salary and may support them from 5-10 years.
Employment tenure and other conditions are also considered before disabled workers may become an eligible beneficiary of long-term disability payments.
