Imagine that you are hurt and must take time out of work. Does your employer provide disability insurance? Even if they do, does it cover the length of time you may be out of work?
These are things you should be considering if you need to purchase disability insurance. Your need for disability insurance may be greater than you realize, and it’s not a responsibility you should simply toss aside for your employer to handle. Although worker’s compensation is required by law to be provided to you by your employer, disability insurance is not required in every state. Only in Hawaii, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and New York does state law obligate employers to provide disability insurance for up to 26 weeks. Currently, there are no state laws that require employers to provide their employees with long term disability insurance.
