What You Have
Your employer offers two types of protection; leave and disability retirement . While at first glance these programs may appear to provide adequate disability protection – they don’t. The main problem is your leave and disability are separate and don’t work together. Qualifying for one doesn’t mean you’ll qualify for the other; therefore there is no set timetable to gauge when benefits begin, end, or how long the benefits will pay out.
What’s wrong with your leave and disability retirement?
Primarily you’re exposed in three ways:
- Your Paid Leave isn’t enough
- You’ll have to live on a reduced fixed pension
- Your employer doesn’t offer any assistance in helping you get back to work
As a result, these gaps in your coverage can leave you exposed financially.
There is a Solution
FedAdvantage offers supplemental Long Term Disability insurance designed to "fill the gaps" in your leave and disability retirement benefits, providing federal employees with the peace of mind in knowing they can protect their income through a comprehensive disability insurance program.
Underwritten by The Standard, we offer a choice of four programs intended to meet the needs of all federal employees. Please note: Postal workers (USPS employees) are an excluded class under the program and are not eligible to enroll.
