Individual Short-Term Disability
Your bills can add up quickly if you are unable to work for several weeks or more. This coverage pays you a portion of your income to help you keep up with your expenses while you're not getting a paycheck. And you can take it with you if you change jobs.
This benefit will provide income to you for up to 6 months prior to the start of your Drury University long-term disability benefit. There will be a choice of elimination periods. Benefits are paid in addition to any sick leave. This will allow you to tailor this important benefit, so in the event of an illness or injury would cause an absence from work, a percentage of lost income could be paid to you for necessary living expenses.
