What is Short-Term/ Long-Term Insurance?
Both of these insurance policies are made to protect any employees that experience loss of income. This can be a result of injury, illness, or long-term accidents. The main difference between the two is that long-term insurance will make sure that your employees still receive a percentage of their income. While short-term insurance only protects and pays your insurance temporarily.
Additionally, short-term insurance does not protect your employees against any work-related injuries like a workers’ compensation policy would. Although, you will still receive a small portion of missed income.
What is accident insurance?
Accident insurance commonly gets referred to as worker’s compensation insurance. Although it should be noted that the two are not the same. The official name for accident insurance is occupational accident insurance. This provides coverage for employees that are injured or killed in a job-related accident. This policy is mainly for contractors who do not qualify for worker’s compensation policies.
Worker’s compensation will cover any worker more comprehensively. Some states actually mandate that you have this policy on hand as well.
What is group life insurance?
Group life insurance is sort of a unique type of policy. It is offered to employees who are permanent or have worked for at least 30 days after the hiring date. Group life insurance is generally included in an employee benefits package. However, it is usually offered at a far lower price than the individual will find on their own.
If you are offered this policy at your place of work it is highly recommended that you take it. As policy prices outside of your package are considerably higher. This policy is a yearly renewable policy that is in place until you leave, are terminated, or the coverage runs out. Your coverage will be one or two times the amount you make in your annual salary.
