Term: Short-Term Disability Insurance

Insurance that provides a percentage of a person’s salary if he or she is unable to work for a short period of time dues to sickness and/or injury. Short-term disability policies typically have a limit on the amount that will be paid per month, and another limit on the amount of time benefits will be paid. The provisions of the short-term disability policy are usually coordinated with the features of a long-term disability plan.
