Short & Long Term Disability Benefits in Jacksonville
While employers are not required to provide disability, pension and retirement plans for their employees, they get tax benefits if they do. In exchange for those tax benefits, they must meet certain standards for funding and managing those plans. In 1974, Congress passed the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) in order to make sure that benefits promised to employees were there when they needed them.
Today’s employers often offer short term disability benefits and long term disability benefits. These benefits are most frequently promised to you in exchange for premiums paid by you or your employer through insurance coverage.
