Group Short-Term Disability Income Insurance
Most disabilities last less than six months. But even a short-term disability can cause a severe financial hardship. We offer several options for ACS members to coordinate with their Long-Term Disability Income Benefits.
The ACS Disability Income plans can help you maintain your current lifestyle and help protect you and your family from serious debt by replacing a portion of your income with monthly benefits for covered disabilities.
Here is what the ACS Group Short-Term Disability program can offer you:
- Monthly benefits up to $5,000, limited to 60% your average earnings (70% if combined with ACS LTD)*
- Choose your waiting period – 7-days or 30-days
- Choice of Maximum Benefit Period – 3-months or 6-months (so you can coordinate with your ACS Long-Term Disability Plan)
- Maternity Benefits: Benefits can be paid for up to 3-months (6-months for complications of pregnancy)
- Available exclusively to eligible ACS members under age 60
