Your Employees
Workplace PossibilitiesSM plays an important role with our Group Short Term Disability insurance. This program looks at the range of factors that can delay an employee’s recovery from a physical — or behavioral — condition.

Clinical, vocational and accommodations experts then coordinate their efforts and tailor a plan to help the individual return to work. They also focus on preventing disability in those still working, giving them the opportunity to stay at work.
