Group Short-Term Disability Income

When an employee is sick or injured and can’t work, Group Short-Term Disability Income insurance from Assurity can bring them meaningful benefits to help replace lost income.

Why Group Short-Term Disability Income?

Less than 1 in 3 Americans have an emergency savings fund of 6 months or more.*


If an accident or sickness prevents an employee from working, chances are the paycheck stops too. Only 31% of Americans have saved enough to cover six months of expenses or more and nearly a quarter of Americans have no emergency savings fund.* Group Short-Term Disability Income insurance from Assurity can help employees protect their income, so they can focus on getting better rather than worrying about finances.
