At [company], we understand that unforeseen events can sometimes prevent employees from being able to work. In order to support our employees during these times, we offer short-term disability insurance.
Our short-term disability policy provides eligible employees with partial wage replacement if they are unable to work due to a non-work-related illness or injury. The policy covers employees who have been employed with the company for at least 90 days and are actively at work on the day they become disabled.
To be eligible for short-term disability benefits, employees must provide a written notice of their disability and a doctor’s certification of their inability to work. Employees may be required to provide additional medical documentation as needed.
Short-term disability benefits will begin on the eighth day of the disability and will continue for a maximum of six months. The benefit amount will be equal to 60% of the employee’s weekly wage, up to a maximum of $1,000 per week.
We are committed to supporting our employees and helping them through difficult times. If you have any questions about our short-term disability policy, please contact your supervisor or HR representative.
