Temporary Total Disability provides a monthly or weekly beneﬁt as a result of an accidental bodily injury or sickness. The policy can begin to pay a beneﬁt following an elimination period, and can continue to pay as long as the person remains disabled or the maximum beneﬁt period of coverage is exhausted.
Short-Term Disability policies (STD) have a waiting period of 0 to 14 days with a maximum benefit period of no longer than two years.
Monthly benefits can commence following the elimination period and can be paid for as long as the total disability continues, but no longer than the benefit period. In the event of multiple separate claims, each claim will have a full benefit period eligibility.
