Are You Protecting Your Employees’ Income?
42% of U.S. workers are living from paycheck to paycheck, according to a recent survey by CareerBuilder.com. 20% of workers have missed at least one payment on their bills in the past year. While the employment picture remains stagnant, employees are paying greater attention to spending decisions and savings. And while health insurance can help pay medical bills if an employee takes leave to deal with a health issue, the loss of income can be devastating to other household costs during an illness. Short Term Disability policies can help protect your employees’ income and are often surprisingly affordable. We have relationships with several carriers which provide these benefits on both an employer-paid and voluntary basis. Give us a call today to learn more.
