An additional option for employers
Disability insurance provides temporary cash benefits to eligible workers who have a full or partial loss of wages due to a non-work-related injury/illness or due to pregnancy. Similar to Workers’ Compensation insurance – which provides wage-replacement for job-related illnesses and injuries, disability provides wage replacement benefits for non-occupational situations. Used in tandem, these products can offer around-the-clock protection against unexpected loss of income.
We offer Disability insurance, including Paid Family Leave, to New York employers through AmGUARD Insurance Company. In addition to statutory benefits, a variety of enhanced options are available.
