Income Protection for Short-term Disabilities1

To family and loved ones, you're invincible, invulnerable, larger than life. And why shouldn't they think that? You've always been there for them. You work hard every day to support your home and your lifestyle. But what if you suffer a non-work related injury or illness and can't bring in the money needed to support yourself or your family? The fact is, income lost through disability is, on average, two times as great as auto accident losses, and three times as great as fire losses.2

Help protect what you've worked for all these years, even if you can't work for months

Take heart: the roof you sleep under, the car you drive, the lifestyle you've built, may be protected – if you protect your income – and Short-term Disability insurance can help you do that.


Protecting your income: until you're on your feet, we've got your back.

If you are hurt or fall ill and can't work, Short-term Disability Insurance pays you a portion of your lost earnings. It kicks in when you're laid up - to help you pay your monthly bills, such as your mortgage or rent, not to mention everyday expenses like groceries or child-care. You can focus on your health, knowing your finances are well taken care of.

1 The Hartford offers a wide variety of financial protection products geared to maintain your or your family's financial health should you experience a disabling illness, injury, or death. The product described here may or may not be offered by your employer.
