Long Term Disability
A long term disability policy provides employees with financial assistance in the event they are unable to work for a long period of time due to injury, illness, or an accident. This type of insurance pays a percentage of an employee’s salary while they are unable to work. ComTon Inc. works with employers to design coverage that keeps employees protected. We will assess your company’s needs, and are proud to work with over 15 insurance companies.
Short Term Disability
If injury or illness leaves an employee unable to work, a short term disability policy pays them a percentage of the salary for a specified period of time. This type of policy helps protect an individual’s standard of living in the event they are unable to perform their job duties. Typically this type of policy pays around 40 to 60 percent of an employee’s weekly income. The team at ComTon will work with you to determine which short term disability plan fits your company’s needs.

A workers’ compensation policy provides employees with compensation for an injury or disability sustained on the job. In agreeing to receive workers’ compensation, an employee waives their right to sue their employer for negligence. This protects the employer from a potential lawsuit, while ensuring the employee receives compensation in the event of an accident on the job.
