Protect your most valuable employees by offering support that truly cares for your workforce.
While the business disruption of losing one of your top-tier workers to injury or illness is difficult enough on its own, standard disability insurance can leave a compensation gap for your high earners, undermining the welfare of your business and leaving your affected executive out in the cold.
Bonus compensation and base salary above a certain maximum aren’t covered by regular disability benefits, leaving your valuable employees to contend with a disability and an income gap concurrently. What's more, disability benefits can be subject to federal, state and local taxes. With the right arrangements, however, you can make sure your highest-paid professionals have the coverage they need.
High limit disability insurance can protect your businesses and those elite executives to supplement the benefits under a group disability policy. For a business, high limit disability insurance can be purchased on a key executive or used in conjunction with a buy-sell partnership agreement to help protect and plan for the future of the business in the event of a disability. It offers financial protection in the event of short-term or career-ending injury or illness, and it can be used to protect your future earning potential as well as the non-guaranteed portion of a current employment contract. Regardless of the severity of the situation, disability income protection can safeguard your organization and the employees who have given it their best, day after day.
