Disability Insurance: Protect You and Your Employees From a Long or Short-Term Disability

The chances that your employees will need disability insurance may be greater than you realize.

Consider these statistics:

  • Someone suffers a disabling injury every 9 seconds1
  • Almost 73% of disabling injuries occur off-the-job1
  • Nearly 50% of all personal bankruptcies and mortgage foreclosures are attributable to debilitating injuries and illnesses2

Insure their well-being with a disability plan

Most people aren't prepared to cover their daily living expenses, let alone ongoing financial obligations, if a disability would prevent them from working. Disability insurance can help provide peace of mind for your employees and their families.

Nationwide Employee Benefits® offers employers a choice of short-term disability and long-term disability plans. 

Rehabilitation and return-to-work incentives

Getting back to work is critical for employees, their families and their employer. That's why we've built flexible disability plans that help benefit everyone involved.

Our long-term disability plans include the following features to make it easier for employees to return to work while improving their overall health and well-being:

  • Workplace modification
  • Rehabilitative services
  • Social Security coordination assistance
  • Work incentive benefit

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

A strong Employee Assistance Program promotes better employee productivity and well-being. Included with our group disability insurance, EAP services help employees and their household members obtain free and confidential access to extensive work/life resources, including:

  • Advice on handling difficult life events, like losing a loved one
  • Parenting information and services
  • Child and elder care provider databases
  • Online financial tools and calculators
  • Identity-theft consultation

  • 24-hour access to a multilingual service center
  • Emergency medical assistance
  • Help locating doctors, dentists and medical facilities
  • Coordination and payment for medical evacuation
