What Is Voluntary Short Term Disability?

Postby Wise » Tue Sep 12, 2017 5:42 am

Short term disability (STD) pays a percentage of your salary if you become temporarily disabled, meaning that you are not able to work for a short period of time due to sickness or injury (excluding on-the-job injuries, which are covered by workers compensation insurance). A typical STD policy provides you with a weekly portion of your salary, usually 50, 60, or 66 2/3 percent for 13 to 26 weeks. Most STD policies have a "cap," meaning you receive a maximum benefit amount per month.


It is called voluntary because you are free to exercise the option to purchase it but your employer will not be paying the monthly premium.

Exactly what it says.
It's a policy that you can choose to buy yourself, to pay a limited amount of income to you, for a short period of time - usually less than six months - if you become disabled, according to the policy definition of disabled.
